Ths other day in tba Senata Morton querulously remarked " thai there were thirty committee of the Home of Eep rfstntatives ostensibly investigating to ascertain what farther legislation ia ne cessary, hot really to make political capital." It U very possible that lb Senator if right and that a majority of th member of the committee re ferred to are eeking to make political capital, bat for all that th work they are doing U of th moat vital importance a regard th tro Interest of th people. Th public service, especially ia th higher grades, has become nothing more or lea than on grand swindle. It may be nothing in the estimation of Morton nd hi oonfrere to expose and punish official fraada and pecnlation of the worst charaoter, bnt the country will think differently. For years the burden of taxation ha become more and more difficult to be born. Trade was re duced, manufactures paralyzed, the cry of bard times wa beard from all seo tions, bat still the visit of th tax gatherer were never decreased or his de mands diminished. Foroed by positive Inability to satisfy the never ceasing call for taxes th people began to look about them. They found it wa tax here and tax there, taxes all around, taxes on everything. Where doe all th money go to? wa then th inquiry. This inter rogatory was answered by Mr, Morton anJ bis friends by protestations of scrap aldfa Integrity and the moat rigid econ omy. Not half MtiaOed, bat from ap parent positiveneas of relief, the people gain submitted their parses to the ex tortionate requisitions of the tax gatherer. Th situation kept getting worse and worse, until the long hoped for reaction in business seems to be as far off as ever. Trade is stagnant, manu factures almost ceased, the working population to groat extent unemployed. Yet there is no relaxation to th per emptory demands of the administration for money. Th cry is money, again money, always money. Nothing was reduced or cut down. The official world at Washington went on as gaily as ever. That jolly tar Robeson tamed the D. 8. Navy into pleasure yacht for Cabinet ministers and Senators. Ths Secretary at War gave splendid enter tainments and th other great official followed suit. The oountry might be in distress, its workers dying of starvation, its merchant failing, its manufacturers bankrupt, it marine rotting from dil ate. What of that? Th Cabinet and it army of officeholders eighty thousand strong were provided for. They could at, drink and be merry and what did they ears? Like the French prinoess who, when told that the people were starving from want of bread, mookiogly aid "why don't they eat oake." That bitter jest met with soma terrible re joinder. Bo Morton and hi friends, when asked to lessen th harden under which th people are being bowed to th arth, went on with their junkettings, their banquet and rejoloing and turned a deaf car to complaint and petitions for relief. Now they are reaping their reward. Day after day bring eaoh its disolosur of frauds and plunders, Eaoh morning adds th nam of another h igh offloialtothe list of the unfaithful, the disgraced and guilty. One day it is Babcock, another Belknap, still again it ia Delano, then Boutwell, then Cress well, then Richardson, then Pendleton and others of more or less note, for foul tale sallies fearfully large and con stantly increasing number. That soon a stat of things should exist is oalaoiitoos It would however be a greater, if it con tinued unchecked and undetected. There fore w say w oar not for th motives of th majority in the House or what political stripe they may espouse, but the work they are doing is of the greatest value and benefit, and may for a time, at least keep official bands from picking and stealiug. The other day in Great Britain a fraud nlent bank manager was prosecuted and severely puuished. Not many years since in the same country, the heads of a bank ing firm were condemned to lengthened term of penal servitude for dealing fraudulently with th money and prop erty entrusted to their charge. On this side of the water we are mora progress. ive, and when the manager or cashier of a saving or other bank walk off with th painfully acquired saving of bun' dreds of worker of both sexes, or th fund of trustful depositor, th inquiry in such affair is limited to ascertaining " how much be got away with." When th thief get clear off with a very large booty, th dextrous villain is greeted with a corresponding amount of admira tion. However, there is some hop in th fact that it is perhaps possible to atiat th publio appetite for successful rascality. There are signs that the thing is becoming monotonous, and some gay offender may yet learn that leaden footed jottice oan atrike deep and bard. 80 tba Senate adopted th report of th committee, and refused to confirm Dan a Minister to Great Britain. Now will th average " Hubbite " nurse bis wrath to keep it warm. If that rare old Ben! Ben Butler, bad any " har " they would urely rata hi ecalp. Th f anniest part of ths affair ia th Agar that Dana oats, which, for all th world, i lik Joseph Surface in the last son of th school for scandal. Eight millions form ths trifle that ths present good for nothing House of Bep rasentatir6 propose to savs in its ap propriations for ths army and transfer tnglbs Indians to theoare ottb War Deprtmnt. If somebody do not atsal lbs difftrsnoc th reduction will afford peroeptibl relief. 1 Ths Bust B. Th B bate been al together too anenimoai.aa Sam Bard wa told, in improving th shining boar. They gathered boney all the day and now com unkind folk say tbey bave been stealing. Thl time it is Boutwell and Batter who are invited to explain aome tricks that are apparently vain, but which netted the redoubtable B. F. B. the neat little sum of 125.000, made Boutwell Senator from Massachusetts and Richardson Secretary of the Treas ury. Th telegram published this morning say that Butler controlled the Senate in the Dana matter. It is possi ble be did, but ia 1872 be not only manipulated the Senate, but the Presi dent and Stat of Massachusetts. Th poets style th great dramist, "Oh! rare Ben Johnson." In tbi nineteenth century, may we not with equal truth say "Ob! rare Ben Butler," for he not only pocketed th 125,000, bnt humbugged the solemn smartie at th " hub,", and osed the President like clay in the bands of th potter. Bar old Ben I No doubt th Congressional Committe i full of admiration for him, bnt its members will poke th impertinent inquiry at him, how about that $25,000? As to the other B., tb ex-Seoretary and present Senator Boutwell, the story is likely to be true. Be never wa anything but a. solemn take-in and pretentious do-funny, who was about as fit to perform the du ties of controlling the D. S. Treasury as poor paralyzed Morton to run a foot race. "A Da? of Dopo." From the eloquent lips of Riohard O. Gorman, the distinguished lawyer, fell the following brilliant peroration. It closed a speech delivered in New York at the banquet given by the Knigbt of St. Patriok : To such noble ambitions let the mind of Ireland learn to aspire; to be, in its way, tbe benefactor and friend of man kind. Fate has spread the Irish raoe all over the eartb. Let us not quarrel with ite decrees. It has overflowed the nar row boundaries of tbe little island where its energies were confined, wasting away in barren antagonism and unavailing re grets. Now it seeks new fields where viotory can be won. The day will be I may not live to see it when this quiok intellect, nsw armed and equipped, will enter tbe generous rivalry, aud Knights of St. Patrick be met in all the lists. The time will oome when Irish genius will soar in th fall blaze of every solenoe with unfaltering vision and unwearied wing; and then ber children, faithful al ways to the memory of their mother inland, will oome to oast their wreaths of triumph at her feet. Then, warmed and cheered by their returning love, she will arise, and, standing in tbe light of her nndimmed, unrivalled beauty, will take again sword and crown, tbe acknowl edged queen of th western world, ruler of her own destiny, mistress of ber own fftte. Then, believing all this, with un faltering faith, I oan address to my dear old home the apostrophe of ber patriot poet; in all truth and sincerity, ad dress it : " The nations have fallen, and thou still art young, Thy tun It bnt rising, when others are aet ; And tbo' slavery's cloud o'er thy morning hath bung, The full noon of freedom shall beam round thoe yet." Pcbuo Schools. Amidst all tbe stuff and nonsense, jargon and oant emitted by a lot of addlebeaded twaddlers, how refreshing it is to find th common-sense expressions of a clear-headed man. Fools and fanatics seek every oppor tunity to gush about common schools, but the publio is beginning to find out that tbe eduoation of "gush" like the religion of "gush" is a very unsatisfory and unreliable affair. This is what the Rev. Dr. Hill, ex-President of Harvard College says: These are the three essentials to be taught in the publio sohoola: first, sonud morals; secondly, good English ; thirdly, elementary mathematics. Tbe school which teaolies these well and thoroughly gives a good common school eduoation; tbe school which fails in either of tbe three makes a failure. The child who has thoroughly learned these will, Bince good morals inoludo habits of industry, acquire ol its own aocord all tbe further eduoation wbioh it abilities and its opportunities allow. In future when a follower of Tyndall enters into matrimony, the bride is to be asked the following interrogatory: "If she will take that anthopold to be her oo-ordinate, to love with her nerve-centers and to cherish with ber whole oellu lar tissue, until a final molecular dis turbance shall resolve bis organism to it primitive atoms." The Reno Journal says ths Central Paciho contemplate building a railroad direct from Reno to Virginia City. We don't see that any particular benefit would be derived from suoh action, ex cept more rapid transit between th two laces. Th Central Pacifio is a great eal bigger monopoly than tb V. T., and in this fight our sympathies would b with th under dog. We say ditto. We ar glad to se that th people ol California ar proceeding in right good earnest in the Auti-Cbinese agitation. Meeting ar beiug held in San Fran cisco and several other points in that State. Could not Nevada lend some Now amo Thin. The N. Y. Herald ay that in 1818, th transportion of Indian supplies cost $813,000, in 1876 it ia over seven millions. The difference is paid by the people and then placed where it will do most good. Ex-Governor Low says, that as all the Chinese com from Hong Kong, which is a British possession, it is tba treaty with Great Britain that needs revision. NEVADA NKWS. Dr. Mary A. Walker is honoring the Bonanza City with ber preaenoe. Phe will Lecture on temperanoe. Th business of saving tailings ia active on all th canyon near Virginia City. Th low prioe of quicksilver make it possible to work almost all kind of tail ings. Th Reno Journal of ths 30th ultimo ays th bullion shipment from th Comstook continue heavy. Monday night Wella-Fargo bandied 80 bars and Tues day night 82 bar. And if it was not tor that Carson Mint A terrible tragedy occurred in a house of ill-fame Mendocino, Cal., wbioh re sulted in th death of one of tb Inmates namAil Tna f ifatiAll And a man fmn San Francisco named Frank Mitchell.' Both were shot and killed by Harry Kleioschmidt. Tb report is that Mitchell made a motion as if to draw a pistol, when Kleinschmidt fired, bat at tbe same time tbe girl stepped between them and received tbe contents in tbe breast, killing her instantly. He tben fired a second time tbe ball entering the abdomen of Frank Mitchell, from tbe effect of which be died in a short tin:e. The murderer is under arrest. So much water is to being pamped by th several mine along the Comstock that there I an abandanee of water In Six-mile Canyon to run a large water mill. There is five times the volume of water in the canyon that there was at tbe time of tbe discovery of tbe Comstock. Some very good specimens of cinnabar have lately been brought in from tbe head of Hackett Canyon on the south side of tbe Carson River. Tbe speci men were from the surface and it is thought tbat by properly prospecting some fine or may be obtained. It is now thought tbe destruction caused by the freshet in Worcester county, Mass., will amount to $500,000, There is reason to believe three lives bave been lost, two in Clinton and one in Webster. John S. Harris of California arrived at Baltimore a fow days ago with twelve Angora goats, which he brought from Asia Minor after a difficult journey, last ing a year. Tbey have aire id y oost him over $525 a piece. Harris hopes to make them profitable in the Sierras of California. This is tbe first importation of tbe kind. A good deal of prospcoting is being done in the neighborhood of Steamboat Springs. Tbat region is considered to be very rich in both sulphur and quick silver and the men who are prospecting don't much care which way lack may lead them whether it be cinnabar or brimstone that make them rich. "Cin and helenblazes are closely related Ed. Rkcobd. Tbe Humboldt Register says a wag recently induced a party of serenaders to tramp four mile to poor forth a con cord of sweat sounds at the residence of a newly married couple. They were re ceived by the bridegroom tn neglire; that is, with a shotgun, which caused them to change their base without standing upon the order of their going. Tbey are now bunting for tbe man who victimized them. The Carson Valley News gives the fol lowing aocount of tbe recovery of the bullion stolen from the Bellville stage: Immediately upon the.rcoelpt of tbe stage robbery Dennis Thompson, C. E. Conover, John G. Irwin, and another man whose name we did not learn, started for th scene of the robbery. They soon found one of the sacks of bul lion which tbe robbers were unable to carry. After following tbe trail about a quarter of a mite to a point where it crosses a spur of tbe mountain, Dennis Thompson discovered where one of the mule' feet bad slipped, causing qnito a depression in tbe trail, which he thought looked suspicious, and after digging down with his jack-knife about twelve inobe be struck bullion. Continuing tbe search, they found buried in the trail at regular diatauces of about fifteen feet a bar of the bullion. Tbey afterwards found tbe empty sack thrown over a precipice quite a distance from where the bullion was buried. Judging from tbe bungling manner in which the robbery was conducted there is no doubt that the robbers were inexperienced in the busi ness and will be easily captured. Seven bars of the bullion have be recovered and parties are still hunting for the missing bar, GENERAL NEWS. . A decree of Marshal MaoMabon pro mulgated to-day announoes incidentally that a universal international exhibition will shortly be held in Paris. Tbe exhi bition will be held in 1878 or 1879 at the latest. A libel suit for $50,000 was brought against the St, Louis Times by Watson Foster of Pike county, the matter grow ing out of certain publications in the Times concerning Foster's statement in relation to II. F. Summers, one of the jurors in the trial of William MoKee. Tbe Boston Post publishes an inter view with General Kilpatrick, in wbioh he denies he left Washington to esoape testifying before the Investigating Com mittee, and says he is ready to swear that General Butterfleld offered him $20,000 to assist bira (Butterfleld) in securing the New York Collectorship, and that he can bring half a dozeu wit nesses who saw the offer in writing. The Loudon Telegraph says: "We believe the facts concerning the Czar are tbat he is seriously ill, and his physi cians have recommended a prolonged so journ at Ems and afterwards in Switzer land. It is therefore probable that publio convenience will render it ueoessary for the Czarowitoh to exercise tbe functions of Emperor during his absence," A Times Berlin dispatoh says: "The pros pect of a regency in Russia exoites much speculation here concerning the probable relations of Russia and Germany because of the anti-German tendencies of tbo Czarowitcb."
