Tho first thing proposed by tho
radical congress, at the commence
ment of the present session, was to
double Grant's salary. Grant got ]
rich during bis first term ou $25,000
per year, now he must have $,">0,000.
The first thing done iu our radical
•tate legislature, on the first day of
the present session, was to ofler a bill
doubling tho salary for Gov. llart
ranft. The bill passed the radical
senate and house a week thereafter,
and a few days ago was signed by
Gov. Geary. The earlier governors
of this state got aloug with $3,000 per
year. Geary had his increased to
$5,000, and now Hartahft gets double
—slo,ooo per year.
Well, these radicals always did
promise reform, were very loud about
it last election, and wo must confess
they have rfformed the salaries, and
are entitled to the gratitude of all
tax pa pore.
This kind of radical reform reminds
us of the Irishman who built a stone
fence making it two feet high and
three feet wide ; a neighbor comming
along told Tat it was too wide and it
a wagon came along it would upset it
"And be jabbers if it does.'' says Pat,
,4 it will only be a fot higher for the up
aetten." So with these, rads, all their
reform means a "fct higher in the

In another column we print an ar
ticle from the world, on tho proposi
tion to refund the cotton tax —a job,
a radical swindle, to tap from the
treasury 63 million dollars at one
vreep. These claims, amounting to
$63,000,000, were all bought up by
shoddy patriots around Washington,
for a few cents on the dollar, and these
worthies are now at the head of thi?
gigantic scheme, and we expect to see
it go through, for they can well afford
to spend a few millious to make the
63—and if this congress does not pass
it, it will surely go through the next.
The following we clip from the pro
ceedings of 22nd inst:
Mr. Orvis offered the following resolu
tion, which was twice read and agreed to:

The New York Herald very justly
sayb"of the Credit Mobilier expos
ures :
Senators and Representatives are
shown to have hung around an agent
of the Union Pacific Railroad and
Credit Mobilier "Ring," seeking in
formation as to how they could invest
money, accepting from him stock at a
fourth or fifth part of its value—some
times borrowing of him the money,
With which to pretend to pay for the
ah&res "placed" to them ; and the peo
ple are asked to believe that these
hungry, purchasable legislators were
only engaged in an ordinary business
transaction. Senatois and Ileprescn
tatives are proved to have consum
mated their bargains with the Credit
Mobilier lobbyist under the mask of
their wives or Bon-in laws, and to have
run like frightened sheep to get rid of
the atock as soon as it became evident !
that exposure was inevitable ; and vet
the people are asked to believe that
these dodging, skulking operators nev
er dreamed thatjthey were committing!
an improper or illegitimate act when J
they accepted the pecuniary favors ol
the Bhiny Ames. Some of the tainted
legislators come boldly forward and
iustify their speculations in the Credit
Mobilier stock, declaring that they
had as much right to become purchas
era of shares in that corporation, and
voting upon legislation in regard to it,
U they have to buy sheep and vote on
■tiie tariff on wool, and their party or
gans approve their position, or quiet
ly pass it over as reasonable enough
to the public.

The committee on legislature, in
the constitutional convention, has i
made a report submitting an amend-1
mcnt for tho government of our state
legislature, which coutainssome whole
some features, somo of which have
heretofore been advocated in the Hk
rORTKR, such as preventing jobs, bri
bery and the use of corrupt meaus to
obtain nn election and accepting
money for favoring aud voting for
bills. Tho main features of the pro
posed amendmeumt are : That elec

on the first general election day after
tho adoption of the new constitution ;

I <>r indirectly, any vote in his election,
,iud that he has uot, nor will acceptor

money or valuable thing from any
corporation, company, or person, for
any vote or influence he may give or

act ; that this oath shall be adminis

by law. Each house may regulate its
own proceedings, punish, and, by a
two-thirds vote, expel members, but
not a second time for the same cause.
The sessions shall be public, uoless
when the business is such as ought to
be kept secret. Neither house shall,
without the consent of the other, ad

of surety of the peace, members shall
be priviledged from arrest during
their attendance at the sessions, and in
going and returning from the same ;
they shall not be questioned outside

The Right Ring
Mr. Orvis, on the 20th inst, in the
House, mtde ft few short remarks,
which will go to show, that our repre
sentative, as we predicted in the KB
roKTKR when advocating his election,
I would not bo found on the aide of has
ty legislation and legislative jobe.
The question being on the last section
of Senate bill No. 9, to authorise the
appointmeut of a board of health for
tho hero' of Carlisle :
Mr. Orvis. I would like to ask the
gentleuau who has charge of this bill
how these judgments are to be recover
ed and in what oourt and who is to im
prison and inflict the penalties, and
whether the misdemeanor is to be in
addition to the penalty of SIOO. This
seems to be a most singular provision,
as it does not provide any court in
which the trial is to be haJ, nor who
shall judge whether imprisonment shall
be indicted or not
Mr.Latta. The Senator represent
ing that diatrict lives in Carlisle, and
the gentleman representing the bill on
this side lives in Cumberland county.
He asks for it here, because be deems
it a necessity. There are some provi
sions in it that I would not like to have
applied to my constituents, but since
the Senate has passed the bill, and as
it is asked for by the gentleman repre
senting that district in this chamber,
we ought to pass it as an act of court
esy to him.
Mr. Orvis. Ido not reoognite any
such principle as that—that one Sen
ator or member can require thirty
three Senators and one hundred Rep
resentatives to enact a law which is
wrong in itself. It is a right common
to every member of this House to ob
ject to a bill introduced, and I give
notice that so long as 1 am a member,
whenever there is a bill attempted to
be passed under a suspension of the
rules the necessity of which is not
made apparent, that it will meet all
impediments that can be thrown in its
way according to tha rules of the
The committee was thereupon in
structed to report next day.
Mr. Orris it olao after the manage
meut of the Sinking fund —with which
the radical officials at Harriaburg hare
been trifling for some years, and stu
diously trying to keep the people in
the dark, as to their management of
this important institution. Mr. Orris
proposes to hare some light upon the
matter and on the 23rd inst, offered
the following {resolution, which was
twice read and agreed to :
Resulted, That the state treasurer
be requested to furnish to the house a
statement from the records of his of*
fiee of the receipts and disbursements
on account of the sinking fund for
each and every year since the estab
lishment of said sinking fund.
The final bill of exceptions in the
Stokes case was filed, and an eaalg
hearing will be had on the application
for a new trial. Four affidarita hare
been submitted substantiating allega
tions embodied in the bill of excep
One of the affidavits established, on
the authority of a juror, that another
juror, on leaving the court room in
charge of a Deputy Bheriff, visited the
Remington Arms Company's store
in Broadway and examined the vari
ous makes of pistols to satisfy himself,
as he expressed it, whether a casual
observer could tell, in an excited mo
ment, whether a pistol had four or six
barrels. Another juror swears that a
juror named Yoat visited the Grand
Centra] Hotel and examined the stair*
case where the firing occurred to satis
fy himself whether Stokes had means
of escape. He also talked with the
clerk, and others. The defense, it is
understood, mean to insist that these
jurors thus introduced evidence not
submitted on the trial, and invalida
ted their verdict.
Still another affidavit by two women
living in Fourth are. is to the effect
that the juror Yost, while witneainr
the funeral of Jama Fisk, jr., said
that if ever be was on the iury to try
Stoka tha murderer would be hanged.
This remark was made over a year
ago. It has also been established that
\ at and Mitchell, two of the jurors,
live in adjoining housa and are in
businea together, and this fact is reli
ed upon by the defense as in some way
advantageous to their client*

Hon. Davis A. Wei la ia smiting lbs
postal telegraphing scheme of the gen
eral government with heavy, damag
ing blows. He preeenU such facta aa
cannot be overcome in relation to the
improper character of the movement.
In the first place Mr. Wells takee is
sue with the Postmaster-General that
a complete system of telegraph lines
could be built for a little more than
SI 1,000,000. He says the existing
lines could not be bought for less than
$75,000,000, to say nothing of exten
sions. To meet this expense a loan
would be required. This would be
followed by additional taxation upon
the people. In discussing this matter,
Mr. Wells refuses to compare the pro
posed system ia America with that
now operating in Europe, although
showing that it is a dead loss every
where except in the small territories,
when conducted by the government,
although the relative population to
each mile of wire is three times as
great in Europe as in the United
tates. It is not only as a financial
investment, but also as a piece of po
litical machinery, that Mr. Wells
treats the Postal Telegraph. He con
cludes that the system is inconsistent
with republican institutions, and draw
ing an inference from the PostofiSce,
which gives neither cheap postage nor
bonnet service, he judges that a gov
ernment telegraph would eaually fail.
The conclusions of Mr. Wells are
those which bear the stamp of intelli
gent observation and careful, honest
examination into the whole question
of Postal Telegraphy. If the govern
ment owns ana controls the lines, they
will most assuredly be prostituted to
partisan purposes. Besides this, in
the end, tne cost of transmitting in
telligence from point to point would
be greater than under the present sys
tem. The Postal Telegraph move
ment is a "Ring" maneuvre of the
party in power in the nation, and it
should be defeated.

Tbe ground upon which this enormous
rMtitution of excite It claimed are, firt,
thai the tax waa an unconstitutional one,
and that it is the duty of the Government
to repair damages done under pretext of
law, or it will run the risk of standing in
the light not only of a public robber but
of a parricide, destroying the people and
the principles to which it ewes its exis
tence. Second, that this money, extorted
from the Southern people ia the years of
their utmost poverty and destitution,
should be repaid them for humanity's
sake and as a matter of national policy, to
enable them to rehabilitate their suffering
and prostrate industries.
As a matter of fact, the duty was of
I course not constitutional" Asa matter of
strict justice, Congress is bouad to make
restitution. But Congress has not in the
! past been governed by rigid and closet
principles, or more than the legislature of
any people, past and present. Govern
ments exploit themselves rathor in the
open country of expedience than upon the
cold, severe, restricted heights of fixed
principles. If, being a matter of strict
justice,lCongreas be bound to refund the
money collected under the cotton tsx, j
compelling Itself by the maxim o{Jlaljus
titia, ruat talum , then, by parity of rea
soning, it was bound to rescind the proc
lamation of emancipation as soon as the
war ended ; is bound to do so still and be
gin the agitation about the amendments dt
neco. Nobody desires such action as that,
and very few would consent to it. We
will preiently inquire how many desire
the restitution of the cotton tax and who
those are who do so. Congress in fact, has
the same right to determine the cotton tax
to have been a "war measure" as it had to
deteimine that Mr. Lincoln's several acts
outside the letter of the law were so; and
Congress is as much bound, providod the
expedient justification be the same in both
oaaes, to extend amnesty to the ono set of
acta as to the other. If Copgrpss had no
rights in the one ease Congress has no
rights in the other. But Congress has
! agreed (whether by a process of colorable
fiction or whether properly is no jnetter)
that the right existed in the one case, and
the commonest rules of consistency require
it to admit that the right exists in the oth
er case. The questiou of constitutionality,
therefore, does not enter at all into the sub
ject of the reduction of the cotton tax,
which is narrowed down to the point of
whether it is a thing to be done for
btUMßity't sake and for expediency's
We in the second place aro willing tol
concede at once, if it can be shown aali*-1
faclorily that there i* SO&,UUU,UH> worth ol |
| humanity to the suffering South in the act
of refunding the cotton tax, it ought imme
diately to bo refunded. If there be $tH,-
| Uki.UU worth of expediency to the country
iat large in refunding this money let it be
paid at once. If it can be thown that this
SOh,tUD,(JU> proposed to be refunded, or
una-half of It, or one-tenth of it, will go

cents to make him even with the tax He
paid it but he will never get it back, for it
will not be refunded to hiiu, but to thu<
who stood between him and the Govern-
I nient assessor and collector, and bunded
over and took receipt* for the tax which
they had previously extracted from the
producer without giving him any voucher
whatsoever. The Southern producer, il|
will be remembered, had no baud in frani
ing the regulation* for the collection of
this tax, xo vital to his immediate inter
| e*H, and it wa* not framed so a* to give
I him any benefit from any prospective rep
aration*. The tax wa* laid and the regv
I tations were framed in ths interest of the
cotton manufacturer exclusively, and il
was intended at once that the manufactu
rer should receive no present harm from
the tax, and should reap all the profits
from it* possible restitution in the future.
With this end in view, therefore, the ar
rangment wa* made to give the manufac
turer an immediate equivalent drawback
per pound on all the cotten goods export- j
ed by him, and to require the la* to be
paid at tha place of exportation or the,
place of manufacture. Thu* the planter

Congress promptly refund the cotton tea
to the ring of shrewd lobbyists and ple
thoric manufacturers w ho are intere*ted in
'the matter. But if Congress simply feel*
that expediency and humanity demand
that some sort of relief should be extended
to the (uffering South, let it prov ide say
So.UUO.UUO, to be equitably disbursed
through that section, and < will guaran
tee that the South will get more money in
that way than it ever will from all the
S<*,OOO,WJO proposed to he vicariously re-
I funded.
The fact that this scheme for refunding,
witich hat so long been loitering beyond
the horizon, has now come forward in
such imposing array and with such titnul
> taneousnes* along the line, leaches us that
: thare u dangr in it- This danger is not
lessened by the further fact that the insti
gators of the movement, in order to pre-'
; servs the appearance of a widowed and mi
'poverithed South suing at the doors of
Congress in forma paupena, have retain
jed several eminent Southern lawyers to
represent their claims and plead for their
Spirited Debate on the Coat of Civil
izing the Indiana.
Washington, Jan. W —One of the annual
discussion* on the Indian peace policy'
took place in the Senate on 9th inst Mr.
Windam. in reply to some assertion that
was made a day or two ago, attempted to;
defend this policy of economy,
and compared the expense* of fighting In
dians in IS6& and IKO6 with the present
cost ef that portion of the army now en
gaged in the tame way. Admitting that
the appropriations made in the Indian bill
had increased during the past two or three
years, he claimed that three or four time*
this increase had been saved in the ex
pense* of tho army.
This brought Mr. Thurman to hi* feet,
and he evidently prepared himself for'a;
speech on this very point He
that tho comparison made by Mr. Win
dom was an unfair ona, a* ba had taken a
period when the extravagance of the War
Department in fighting Indian* wa* whol
ly bayond parallel. To illustrate thi* he
•aid that one expedition that wa* ent out
after the Indian* coat $5,000,(100. The <H
cer in command, in hi* official report, *aid
that he had killed one Indian.
The expra** agent* denied the truth of
thi* report, and claimed to have killed the
Indian themselves, while the trader* said
that both lied, for the Indiau wa* atill
alive. To show that it wa* not true that
the increa*e in the Indian cxpcn*e* and
the decreae in expenses af the War De
partment have been in the *amo ratio, he
read from the official report* the follow
ing : Indian expen*r*. 1792, $13,548 ; 1800
the Indian appropriation* mint have
been included in lomo other item a* no
•pecial appropriation appear* ; 1820, $315,-
760; 1880, $422,242; 1840, $2,271,867 ; thi*
include* a large *um paid for removing
the Seminole* and other tribe* beyond tho
Mii*ippi river; 1860, $1,673,000; 18(10.
$2,001,000; 1870, $3,407,000; 1872, nearly
$7,000,000 ; $1873, $6,609,000 Expense* ot
the War Department, 1810, $2,204.-'
000 ; 1830, $6,760,000; 1840,1840, $7,166,000;
1860, $9,989,000; 1872, abeut $35,000,000.!
The Indian Commission report* that
there are new, including Ihote in Ala*ka,
300,000 Indian* in the country.
leaving out those in Ala*ka, the Chero
kee* and other tribes in tho Indian territo
tory who have civil government of their
own, there are about 200,000 Indian* who
have to be cared for, and thi* bid give*
tbam $29 50 a bead. Mr. Thurman could
not tee the good policy of providing so
liberally for lha*e Indian*. No nation
that ever lived bad aver provided io boun

Mr. Conkling asked Mr. Thurman what *
he proposed to do about it. Mr. Thurman
replied that, in tha ttrst place, he would t
not increase the expense* from year to
year, and would see that no money -
wa* paid to white men who got themselves
adopted into the tribes just to gt annui- j

The debate continued till afternoon, and
the Sonalo adjourned without passing the
>lill. Ono fact that aeema to be forgotten
by thoeo who complain of the coet of uk
log care of our Indiana, ia that evory year

there in more money stolen out of Indian

For the Keporter.
The financial fureaight which tua peo
ple exhibit in tbeir school affair* furnishes
fit illustration* of the old taw beading this
article. These illustrations are many, and
only a few of the moat prominent will be
When two workmen, equally killfril
and industrious, offer their services, a wise
employer will hire the una that agrae* to
labor for for the )e*s wage*. But If one is
. worthless it would be folly to employ him
though he should offer to work for half the
j wage* the other would. Common tense
would tell u* that this principle hold* true
in regard to employing teacher*. How
ever, the practice in many townships is
quite the reverse. Poor teacher* are fre
i quently employed jut because they agree !
' to teach for a few dollar* loss. Now,!
it i* admitted by every one that a worth j
less teacher does more harm than gaod, is!
ftit wise, then, to hire a poor teacher at thir
ty dollar* a month and Iwote all, than to!
>' secure the service* of a good one at double!
that figure?
Farmer* pay a school tax ranging from
thirty to fitty dollar* a year, representing
n daily tuition for one pupil of thirty to fif
ty teuts; yet such pupil* are often kept
out of schoel to perform trifling errand*!
about home worth not half that amount.
Hut more is lost than the one or two day.
the pupil slaysal home ; attending school
one day in a week and staying at home thai
other four, is worth nothing at all. Poor
attendance ha* a very bay effect on the pu
oil and the school. The pupil gets dis
'jcouragcd, he mliset many important links
n hi* studies, and will make but stow pro
gress. l'oor attendance interrupt* the pro
gress of the classes in which such irregular
1 scholars are found ; they are a perpetual
drag and a constant object of discourage
ment to the teacher. And aside from the
> pecuniary loss which parent* sustain, there
i* a far greater evil inflicted upon the
i child. Il i* robbing the child of his iuval-
I uable time which should he devoted to the
training of hi* mind. Money lost may be
r restored, but time lose can never be re
. gained. How parent* can And any excuse
t for their criminal neglect in providing
-uitablc instruction for their children, is
difficult to conceive, especially with the
i, many school facilities they at the prjsent
' time enjoy.
Most people complain of the large num
liber of *(udies their children have to lake
l up in school, and tbeir objection is well
I fouaded. No matter how important all
- these branches may be, our pupil* can not'
. take up all of them and make good pro-1
gress, for their minds are not sufficiently
• developed to prosecute to many at one'
t time. Hut since it has been ordered that;
t History, Physiology, Music, Drawing, Ac.'
i shall be taught, and if some pupils have
- taken up tbee branches, others, who are 1
n equally capable, should study them too
- For the teacher will grade the length of;
1 his lessons with reference to the number!
d of branches taught in hi* school, and, as
y there are always a few pupils, at least, that
d study all. or nearly all the branches, the
- leuot must neceasarily be short. If then,,
n I there are pupil# baring only a few studies,
e ttie-- will not have assigned them work suf
>- firient to keep them engaged the whole
time. To illustrate. Suppose A and B
;, are both studying three of the same
d branches and are in the same classes. A
r, studiea siz branches, end U three ; now, as |
. they have aasigned them the same lessons,
t A will have to prepare twice a* much a*
5 B The consequence [is, B will be idle;
. about half bit time, for the teacher canaol j
..{take hits on any faster in hi* three branch-;
e* than the rest in hit class. And expeti-j
fence show s that this is a true picture of the
. case In almost every school may be
0 found a few pupil* who will take up only ;
r three or four of the easiest branches, and.
they are the ones that have lime to annoy J
the teacher most. Not having work suffi
cient to keep them employed, they past
their lime in idlene** and mischief. Prob- j
- ably, ip this, at in most other cases, par-;
not* come in for a share of the blame, j
Their chiidien would often be willing to!
1 study if they had tho necessary book.!
r1 When there are bright mind* thirsting for'
• knowledge, it It lolly to permit them to 1
1 trifle away precious time for lack o! a few
• school book*. Practically, the money!
■ paid in the shape of school taxes, is lost.
" through a desire of saving a few cents by ;
i refuting to purchase books, and is an apt 1

'• and a pound foolish " hzixaim.
