The Salaries of Public Officers,
This is a question which has had
any amount ot consideration, and
which bits passed through endless
discussions in tiraos gono by, in
which tho moat giltod and trusty
mon ot our nation havo participat
ed. Tho results of tho various pro
cesses through which tho porplox
ing riddlo has gone, are evorything
but satisfactary, both to thoso who
rocoivo tho emoluments of oflico,and
to thoso who pay them. Somo of
tho old fogios of the oarlior days of
tho republio woro silly enough to
boliovo that tho honor of roproBont
ing a confiding constituency was
all sufficient, so far as tho profits of
tho office wore concornod and that
money enough to defray personal
oxponsos whilo ongagod in tho dis
chargo of public trusts was all that
an honest and zealous man could
ask for or desiro. From Goorgo
Washington down to Androw John
son, the presidents of tho country,
by closo economy and a judicious
disposition of their salarios, havo
boon cnablod to subsist on 5525,000
a your, but in the paosont age,whon
money is tho aoknowlod and rocog.
nized test of ovorything that is
reputablo and coramondablo among
men, we find that this small sum is
about to bo doclared entirely inad
equate to tho wants of tho prosent
distinguished occupant of the pres
idential chair, and that doublo the
sum horetofojo jmid for the guardi
an vigilance of tho chief mag
istrate is about to be votod
to Gen. Grant, as hia salary
for looking out of his offico win
dows upon the fast teams and fast
men which aro daily exhibited be
fore his mansion for his peculiar
and personal delectation. Even
the Congressmen thomsolvos havo
begun to discover that the pay es
tablished for their servicou by su ch
mon as Calhoun, Clay, Daniel
Webster and othors, is a loug way
behind tho avaricious propensities
which rogulato the poculiar ideas
thoy entertain with, reference to
tho objoct of their annunl missions
to Washington. In tho olden times
it was neither popular or customa
ry for Senators and Koprcsonta
tives to bo diroctly interested in
dofraudiog tho government en
trusted to their keeping for faith
ful administration. This modern
invention has been productive of
much profit to such Congressmen
as havo seen proper to avail thorn
selves of it, and as thoy are all like
ly to escape any chastisement for
their venality, we think that the
President will open up a fieljjfeuf
ficioutly wido for the personal graz
ing of that delcctablo body without
the necessity of adding anything to
tho amounts thoy receive for mil
age, salary, etc., and for that rea
son wo are disposed to kick against
any legislation having for its ob
joct an increase of pay for represen
tative lahors. With the Prosidont
tho case is different. lie can on
ly speculate upon bis influ
ence and turn an occasional
penny from some outside job which,
with the law-giving element, tho
keys of tho public vaults are at their
service whenever they can turn
them with a charter bill or a land
grant, they gonerally manage to
grab enough to supply the pressing
doinands, which soem to be con
stantly increasing against them.
Thero sooms to bo a calamitous
issuo ahoad of our country in which
money is proving itself to bo really
tho "root of all evil." Tbe ends
and objects of government appear
to bo centralizod in the porsonal
aggrandizoment of tho governing
oloment, who forgot that tho con
sent of tho goverenod is a princi
ple of our constitutional liberty,
and. one. bold, aauroi by ' those, who
1G, 1873.
understand how to guard as woll ns
protoct it. Unless there be somo
honesty compounded with tho
general disposition of all bills of
appropriation passod by Congress,
the poopjo will oro long rise in their
might and domand from thoso who
aro ruinously , reprosonting thorn,
an abandonment of the seats thoy
fill or a roturn to an oconomio ad
ministration of publio affairs. . Wo
long for this action and for tho
tinio to corao when tho American
pooplo will givo it tangiblo expres
sion. The old land marks, cus
toms and precedents , of our coun
try aro sacred things, and wo dii.
like to soo them brushod away whdn
no other necessity domands it, but

when it was a dolight to dwoll in
and an honor to hail from, our
own Sunny South.' Political op
pression is faBt losing its polluting
swny, and at least in a local Benso,
houosty and dignity, nro supplant
ing corruption and ruffianism; ro
sontmont for past nlllictiori is pass
ing under the veil of pity, and tho
bright sun of redemption casts its
inspiring influonco ovor all around
us. Hero under our own vino and

pectations will not prove abortive.
All branches of industry and en
terprise are well represented ; com
petition makes tho coutost lively,
and though to the "victor bolongs
tho spoils," no unfair moans aro re
sorted to to accomplish tho con
quoBt. Writing in tho "weo sraa'
hours of night," uncontrolably our
thoughts revert to another section
wo onco called home, and whilo we
compare tho activity horo with tho
sluggishness and goneral stagna
tion thero, wo can only commiser
ate those who, "hiding thoir light
under a bushel," cling to old asso
ciations, that, alas I now possess
no charms. Wo have occupied our
allottod space as we have dope,
"act well thy part, thero all tho

Mr. Editor i ' '
I have been to Austin, and I believe the
Legislature will do its duty In re-diBtriot-
lng the Judicial Dlslriota. If they do so, it
is hoped we will not have euoh a slow

Lcarr Tradkb. There is an unfortu-,
nate tendenoy among the youth of the
present day to neglect the aoquiring of .
of eoino useful trade, to go into business,"
which means the coming to the city to go ;
into a a store at a small salary with small
er chances of advance. A large majority
of eur young men seem to feel that it Is
not honorable to becarpentors,blacksmlths
or machinists. No greater m intake could 1
be made. Young men from the country,
do not be too anxious to quit the paternal
roof. Do not be allured by the glittering
inducements or great oities to turn your
baoks upon the experience and advioe of
your fathers. Above all things, before
going to encounter the vioissitudts of for.
tune, arm yourself with a thorough knowl
edge of some branoh of labor. Many young
men of talent and promise become faiU
urea, beoauso they start out in life without :
any specific purpose, and drift around
Without rudder or compass until they are
completely shipwrecked. No matter how ,
fair your prospeots may be, ho time is lost '
whloh is spent in the learning of a good
trado, and no greater mistake was ever
made, than supposing that there was any-,
thin, dishonorable or undienlued in the
calling of the carpenter, tbe shoe-maker
or the cooper, gunsmith, blacksmith or
any other trade.

A Good 8110 winq. Journalism mayfbe
quoted as "looking up." President Thiers
began his remarkable career'as a newspa
per editor. Mr. Robert Lowe, Finance
Minister in the Gladstone administration,
was pinoiple writer in the Times for lev-
eral years, The late Lord Campbell, sue-
cessively Chief Justice and Lord Cbanoel- ;
lor of England, was a Reporter on the
Morning Chronicle for many years. Sir
Thomas Talfourd, author of "lo.,"' who
literally died on the Judicial bench, at
Stafford, as be was oharglng the grand Ju
ry, also was on the staff of the Chroniole.
Mr. Stanley, the disooverer of Living
stone, received a letter of thanks and a
diamond snuff-box from. Queen Victoria -and
a gold medal from the Royal Geo
graphical Society of England: Horaoe
Greeley had the Honor or a public funeral
and a nation's regret; and now Sir James
