As already stated In our prospectus Hie (il.0111: intends to be a republican paper. The administration of I'lcsident Grant has given peace and solid prosperity to the coun. try, while several questions or foreign pol icy, one or more than Hill ly years standing, have been satisfactory settled. We adhere lo the tcpublicau patty be cause it has been the educator or the nation III principles whose practical ou-iupllllcii. Hon by Ihepaity hi lis youthful lire of nine teen years has no similitude In this century In moral sublimity. I.lbci ty lias been giv en to four millions of human beings, and they have leeched equal civil and political piiv lieges, while- their childien have been nl. lowed the tight to be educated. It is the first piu ty In the history or the nation Unit hasilscu to the conception of the hnpor. lauce ol Individual liberty and individual lights, and their protection. It fought Its battle with the advocates of the superiority of the tights of Slate corporations ov er the lights or eltl.ens, and triumphed, and now the Hag protects all. Hut the paths by vv hleh the nation 1 cached this higher gi timid were slippery with the blood or the re publican party. In unselfish nobleness It has spared neither its own blood nor its ovv 11 money. It even hi Ihe midst of Its most stupendous sacrifices blessed tho nation with a railroad that, with Its connections, belts the continent and spans an eighth or tho earth s clrcuinrerence. Then, when the war was over, It wisely mid humanely legislated for the protection of tho weak anil the. restraint or the strong nnd the regulation of the lelatlons of the two rates, left fuco to face hi tho south at alio end of tho struggle, to liegln n now Voidest to prescrvo on the one hand tho lib- ernes nml lights newly won, and cm tho otherto return to something like tho nil clout conditions of dominance, and servility. It was vUlh irrlef that wu Haw 11 few It listed leaders of this magnificent patty, some of the men who had headed our ranks through the woes of war, tempted by the wiles of Oaken Ames Into shnrlng ihe Infamies of the Credit Milliliter. Some Congressmen touched, some tasted, sonic swallowed enough to make them sick the balance of their lives. Vet hi all this the parly's Integrity was not nlTected. The) re publican patty docs not consist hi its lend ers. Those it changes when they prove unwoilhy. Nor docs It ttiku control t fiom Ihe course In Unit case of sundry dem ocrats, for the icptibllcan party has never anticipated much good from democratic, leaders, or it would have elected them to olllce. Thus It was again when Mr. Ilutler ad vocated the salary Ineiease hill In the hit Congress. The fact that he was suppotled by as many democrats ns republicans, though there were fewer democrats In the house, had little consolation for our par ly, while Its own leader's were going so widely nslray. The remedy, however, Is simple. Those leaders who have be trayed ttilsts will be deposed and others substituted; but the lcpublic.iii patty, be- lug composed of the majority of the masses of the people, will lcnialii the same. tiii: vi 1.1, .11 1:1: ri m;. There was something very icinarkiible in the dhectness with which Ihe people leg islated jcstcnlay upon all the complica tions that have arisen in our village alTiihs. Thcio was a determination to shun any In- ci ease ol debt! lo pay oil' with tcasona ble niliidilv the lloallng debt, and to ob- scive close economy for the cuircul year Theie Wcie good speakers who said sensi ble tilings, but llieie seemed lobe Utile attention.

We shall expect much better attention to Ihe duties of Slicct Commissioner now lh.it lie is obliged to be chosen outside of the board. He will look for places tcally needing woik, in older that his diligence, competence and indusliy may be rewarded by a continuance in olllce. lie will have no fellow trustees to trade inllueuce with, w Idle he rests 011 a coiistiuctivo per diem and discovers holes in the sttctt by acci dent. It is a pity that the debt was made with out giving moie satisfaction. This is a growing village, it has n light to put for ward considerable pietensions. It has a good futuic, and wants lo be made Invit ing lo strangers. People who live here, also, like lo bo comfortable, to enjoy good health, and to havebefoie them pleasant views. It l.s necessary that our streets should be neat ; It Is essential to health andeomfoit that llieie should be a good sew erage system. We may well hope for an increase of population. The niaible business will continue to Invite manufac turers, with the consequent advancement of our prosperity. We shall have sculp tors located here, sending their work all over tlio United States j besides an increas ing business of uiaihle-t'itttlnir for the various purposes of household adornment and cemetery memorials. For all these the demand is enoiiuou.s and widely ex tended. Kv en the dust of marble has its Uses inviting to tnimufactuters. The village should be ulo made attrac tive to summer visitors. Wc have line, healthy air. The mountains surround the town with a fresh grandeur very restful to the eyes of citizens of large cities. There Is something new to such strangers in the way In which our mountain peaks ate oe- casionally obscured by Ihe ragged, drag, glng skh ts of clouds. They might see such things in the Adirondack, but everybody does not want to go there, and besides they have no town able to afford white marble pavements and niaible stieet cros sings. Soil is a pity the debt is so huge and must absorb so considerable a propoitlon of the taxes for tho cuitent year. The peo ple of the village will study be very grate ful to the trustees If they will use 'caicful management and such ligid economy us to enthely exclude unnecessary expenses. And alter all we may be pleasantly sur prised by evidence of the amount that can be accomplished with a small sum of money when public servants me faithful and earnest.

The position taken by the country on Ihe salary increase by the last session of Con grcss Is evidence of the advance made by public sentiment, and of the general pro gresslon towards u more refined and elevated standard of morality. It Is 11 matter for strong congratulation that this Idea of moral elevation is growing into polities, rive limes Congress lias raised Us ovv 11 salary and each time made It apply to the euiicnt Cougiess, and tlietu was nothing said by the people on the sub ject, until the experiment of lust winter, vv lien the whole country was swept by a tciiiicst ot Indignation. Several circumstances conti United to this result. After years of unobserved moving forwaid by the nation, like mi army silent ly 111.11 thing in the night, 11 presidential campaign was Inaugurated, hi which an at tempt was made to form 11 party based partly 011 political piuity us one of the planks of Its platform. There wis, it Is true, really no contest on this point Kach party claimed superior puiity to the other, Hut uinldst Jhew-nnU'st us to tho fact wheth er there wuHfenirlty In 0110 party than hi the otherWPptinelplcs, Unit purlly ought to prevail hiuiolltics, ami that Icgls. lutlon should bouiilflsh, were accepted as axioms, anil at the clineluslon of tho con. test they glowed with tho light thrown up on them by tho comments of tho newspaper press on both sides. Hoth patties became pledged to uiisclllsh and economical Icgls- lutlon. Such legislation was ndmltttcd 011 ult hands to be needed, for w e hud an enor mous national debt to pay, mid tuxes were correspondingly heavy. These were tho points to which nn already progressing pub lic sentiment had advanced, w hen 011 the llrst Monday In December the hwt session of the 42(1 session of Congress began. In accordance with public expectation a bill was Introduced lo cut off the franking privilege from members of Congtess. This looked like refoim Indeed, and beginning nt home, and the country was hopeful. The hill passed, mid though It did not take effect Immediately so lis to consllliile any sacrillee to outgoing members of Congress, It would go Into operation on the llrsl of .Inly, so as to affect the next Cougiess and those to follow If some future Congress should not tcstore the franking privilege, and as this would be a considerable yciuly saving to the country, theie wasnodlsposl lion lo cavil on nice points. Hut just at the end of tho session the country, lo lis utter amazement, observed 11 determina tion on the part of both republicans and democrats to reward themselves substan tially for their honesty and economy hi taking away the franking piivllege f 1 out the next Congtess. A bill was introduced voting enough to supply the loss of Ihe franking privilege to Hie succeeding Con gross, and 11 million to the Congress pass lug the law, after its full enjoy inent of the expensive franking piivllege. The llid Congress had 11 legal right to vote Itself that million at the end of the session to cany home. The members had a legal right to raise their salary II fly per cent, for Ihe futuie, though gieenbacks weie within 111 teen per cent, or par, while the Congi esses that ciu iled the country thioiigh the war hud never asked more than soOOO salary per member, even when greenbacks were hut foity cents on the dollar. Still, It was honest, It was honorable, it was le gal; and yet, under all Hie ciicunistaiices, it struck the people as something they had not expected. Happily the vole of every senator and ic picscntnlhu of Veimont was given against both Hits Ineiease and back pay of salary. Hut the ineiease mid back pay being voted hi spite of them, the next question wa, What should be done vv ith 11 '( Legally it belonged to the members. Congressmen,!. H. Hiiwlcy of Connecti cut's. S. Cox of New Yoik, . I, A, Coir Held of Ohio, J, A. Peters of Maine, 0. W. McCrury of Iowa, and others, senators and lepresentatlves, have returned to the Culled States tieasiiry over eighty thou sand dollars of , the eleven bundled thou sand dollars withdrawn after making all deductions for mileage as provided bv the law. On the other baud, Mr. Moitill, who has icrvcd Ids Slate faithfully, 18 jears, who las Its confidence utilvei sally, as 1111 up right, uiistillsb legislator, saw lit to Use his backpay, amounting In over foiiy-lhiee hundred dollats, to aid hi paying the Slate debt of Vermont. I'eihaps he leasoucd that the niajoilly of Congtcssnien would take their money for piivateor local use, and Veunoiit would be taxed for her pait ol' about the million dol lars any way, and might as well get even through him and theie Is much force in this view. While we me disposed to find no fault with Senator Mori HI for the exer cise of his judgment in a case where It was so neatly one of pine exercise of judgment, yet Willi due deference and respect to him and to he honorable name he has won all over the Union, we must be permitted to express 11 preference for that tribute to the highest public sentiment of the country, which has led some members of both houses of Congress to leave their part of the amount In the United States treasuiv. Till: l.l)IA. I'OIICV, Wu like President Grant's Indian peace policy. So fur as lie has been able to plate ttuly Christian agents in tho Held undoubt ed good has been accomplished. For aw Idle llieie seemed to Iks n general success. Hut slackness has sprung up among the chinch es or nt Washington, or the agents who did w ell for two or three years have themselves become corrupted. There are unsolved problems hi dealing with the Indians, but Ptcsident Grant's nil. ministration deserves the credit of being the Hist to attempt the Inauguration of a peaceful, humane, Christian policy. It can hardly be doubted that so far ns the Indians have been brought under It diteeUv. as when the chiefs lied Cloud and Spotted Tail made their visits to Washington and New York, the spirit of the policy has proved lienellcent. The visits of life chiefs named evidently at that time avetted a general war. Hut Ptesldenl Grant cannot personally visit all the tiibes. He must leave their management to the Secietary of the Inter ior. The latter cannot personally visit the Indians, but must beiepresented by agents. These agents used habitually, and have be gun again to 10b the government and the Indians witli exhausting inipaitiallly : but nobody ever heard of one of those gentle men lieing punished, or of an investigation of one case in ten thousand, or of even a rebuke officially from the Secietary of the Interior to an Indian agent and just theie Is the lame place and always has been In all kinds of Indian policies. If the Secietary of the Iiiteiior furnishes an Indian iigetit with live thousand dollars to buy blankets and piovlsious for the Indians, iind Ihe agent buys some boxes or hooks and eyes and a package of skeleton hoops, lo dtess them, and a few boxes of gimlets, and calls these agricultural implements, and buys two nates ol blankets to waim ten thou sand Indians, and thus spends, say a him died dollais.and thenwiites that the appro, pilallon is exhausted, and ho wants another live thousand dollars the money is sent to him promptly, without a word of inquiry as to whether the bargains, the government has made with the Indians have been ful lillcd or have been flatly broken. This style Is pursued year after year and almost universally by Indian agents, with no cities. Hons asked till the Indians 1110 goaded Into stealing and robbing, when troops nie called out, 1111 Indian war ensues, and the ugent, who has beccino rich, retires from business with no bolht-ting Inquhles from tho government. This (treaty, woful round Is the tegular routine of Indian husl. ness. There seems to bo llltlo loom for doubt that tho Modoc war was caused lit that wuy, with its destruction of settlers' lives, tho loss of General Cnnby and Dr. Thomas, and twenty-live bravo soldiers, the bloody and cruel business of e.xlcrmlnu. Hon now proceeding against tho Modocs, the ominous threats of Indian wars all along our borders, and tho vast expenses being added to the burdens of our national debt. Secietary Delano must tit least know what Is common knowledge, that Indian agents are lepotied to have starved, and frozen the Modocs 011 an Inhospitable, reser vation hi Oregon, and .that this repot t was the most Important point In the ense call ing for explanation or defense, yet he onilt ted all reference to tho repent In his re cent lengthy explanation of his policy as applicable- to the Modoc war Wc had In that slalcincnt some t-ry good matter about Sunday Schools and running and Christianity, but nollilni; c-ont-einlng In dlun agents. If these people had commlt- led tin ciltnes II would have been n relief lo be so Inl'oi mcd. If they arc guilty we ought lo have been told of ineasincs of In vestigation and punishment. The peace commission, which seems lo haw had one or incite respectable men In il, was funned loolalennd was dismissed to be followed by extctiulnallon, while the paliiots who caused Hit) war mo allowed to creep Into iiliscuilty. Air. Delano apparently forgets that lr the Indian policy Is perpetually and with Impunity violated, It has no benellts lor the government, none tor Indians, none for any but Indian agents who, like irhouls. tletlve their noiiilsbinci'l from the corpses ol men.

Nothing has Intel v cralliled lis nunc than to note the signs nt activity and success In the new niaible mill. The mill, as most or our Huillngtnn readers may remember, oc cupies tlits great building originally erected for the rolllnginill of Ihe old nail works. The manufacture of nails proving unprof itable, the manufacturing company, after much deliberation nnd delay, decided to stop it, and go Into the business of sawing and finishing niaible. This was n new branch of Industry for our city, nnd In stalling It has bad to meet wilh "the delays mid tti.ds Incident to new ventures. Some of the sawing machinery Hist put In proved less suiisiitniiai man was ucsiraiilc, and hail lo be rebuilt. Then Mr. Haines' planing mill at the cove, which supplied shavings for fuel at the niaible null, burned ; and theie have been other dlfllcultles to over come. Hut the company has petsevert.l, has steadily enlarged Its 'operations, and Is now doing an active, and to all appear.intc, uniting iHisioess. The machinery is driven bv a nouei lid steam engine 0!

'The two maibles coriesliond excellently In hardness. The connivances Introduced 'on the 111b. lung beds cm which the surfaces aie rubbed down with sand, sccuie perfect uniformity 01 size 111111 trueness ot angles in the liies, nnd in these tespects the tiles manufactured bv this company sin pas all others. The pieces selected for table tops, mantel shelves, Ac., after being cul roughly Into shape with chisels, are taken to the cutting machine, in which the moulded edges ate cut, by rapicllyicvolvingedgcsof hardened steel, substantially on the same principle as Ihe cutting of wooden mouldings. The machine cuts Ihe edges on round, square or oval pieces of almost any sie, and saves 1111 immense amount of hard, labor. The plain Hal surfaces are polished cm rubbing beds, on which platens covered with felt coated with polMung putty, are drawn rapidly to and fro bv machinery over the surface of the marble, Much of the woik of finish ing, however, is not adapted to machinery, and gives employment to a good many hands, cutllmr the irtoovcsand bcadlmrs. chiselling out tho carved brackets and me dallions for the mantels, and polishing the ornamental work. The polishing is done by tubbing down, first with sand stone, then with pumice stone, and then with Scotch bone, HnKblng with felt mid French putty, all with a liberal supply of "elbow grease." The Company takes the entile product of the ur.arry o'f the Hranilon Statuary Mar ble Company, and of another Hranilon quarry. It has also, y tho way, leased the sawing mill ol the llrandon company, In Hranilon, and does a considerable por tion of the sawing, near Ihe quarry. The Company also use t on.-iilcrable ciuantltles of the blue and clouded maible from the Pittsford qwirt'cs. The whitejiiarble from the Hrandon q ury Is of li-markuble fine ness, Is hardei than the Hulland matble, and when polished, gives a surface like porcelain or the tlnest Ivory. In these re spects it is unrivalled, and wins favor whet ever It is seen, The manufacture mantels and marble fire-places, forms quit" a feature of the Company's businc We noticed in its store roo. 1 mantels t, 'ilun blue marble, which u be sold i as 15, cheaper than wood, ami cei into istly more de sirable.

We noticed tin eleirant mantel of white niaible with panels of Ihe purpie .uuiieii s nay marine, inientleil lor the new residence which Mr. James McDonald, the wealthy builder and con tractor, is erecting tit Willsboto, N. Y., also some mantels of pine white, with curved brackets and panels, spiral beadlnir. Ac, all highly polished, for the same man sion. We noticed also syme slabs of ted mottled marble from Mullctt s Hay, which me to be made into a mantel for the new residence ol' lion. F. 0 Kennedy, on 'fut ile sticel, and which will make a veiy rich mantel. The business of the Company Is steadily hit-leasing.' It is now making TOO sqtiaio feet of maible tiling hi a day, and has a large contract for tiling from the govern ment, for a new Custom Ilou.-e lit New Orleans. It has also a heavy contract for tiling and maible mantels for the gi cat new depot of the Helton and Lowell It, It., at Huston. These are strut-lines that call for the very liest material available, and that our Huiilngton Company has the contrails shows plainly that It is leading tho market. The Company now employs nearly t()0 men, bete and at Hrandon,- "its pay-toll In lliiilinglon numbering 72 hands. The gen end agent of the Company, In Hiirlington, Is Mr. F. W. Smith, to whose courtesy we 111 1' indebted for information and figures. Mr. K. 11. Walker is superintendent of the mill. Mr. ,1. A. Hiowu is foreman of the mantel depaitment, Mr. Henry Campbell of the sawing depaitment, mill Mr. 0. W. Hopkins of the "coping" or selection and cutting up the lough slab3 for finishing. Mr. iv. A . Hobiiisou has charge of the te pairs. The Company propose soon lo introduce new machinery lor some of Ihe processes now done by baud; and being now fairly launched mid combining genuine enterprise, ample capital, and superior facilities, we hope and expect lo chronicle its continued giowth and prosperity in years to come.

The congregation which assembled at the Hrooklyn Academy iff Music, yesterday, numbered little short of 1,000 persons, ifie buildlng being packed in every p,u t aisles, orchestra and private boxes being crowded as well ns the regular seals. The congre gation included many who nie not tegular attendants at the Academy or any other place of worship, nnd who "came yesterday to bear the arguments of Hey. T." De Witt Tahnazo In favor of tho use of the Hllile in tlie public schools. The expulsion of tho Hible would decide that a great multitude of childien should hav no religious culture. The Hible lit terferes .h n man'' Ight, and Its expul sion would be -iuj, ,.u 'he conscience of men. Tho rigut to'take il o t of the pub lic schools implies-'Hif right to take out any other book that acknowledges God, The Hible Is a supremo hook from supremo In siibutlon, and has a right to be introduced a lywhert. It expulsion from Ihe public schools, there i.-e, would bo nothing short of dishonoring the Almighty. Ceiiuniftn school education, said the preachers, Is a creation of Protestantism. It is stated that the Catholics will at some time demand a petition of the public funds for their schools. It would be better to let the public funds go lo them, and have the common schools depend for support and maintenance on tlio charity of the Christian church, than that the Hible should bo taken from the children's hands.

A person was recently con victed in London of "a gross, e and most atrocious libel" 011 his own niece, by scniling her a postal card containing nn ac cusation of Immoral conduct, for which ho was sentenced lo two years' hnpiisoninent and a line of two hundred and fifty dollars. The young woman was one of eleven 1 hil drcn, and at the time, cm account of the Ill-health ol her lather, was suppoiting herself by working In a icpectablo re freshment room. Tho uncle had written her an ordinary letter on the subject, and iiflcrwaid sent her the postal card, thus maliciously and cruelly conveying to her associates anil employers his'own unjust suspicions. The result was that the gill lost her place, was brought into dlsesleein, and, if the charge had been title, would have been prevented ever from associating with Holiest women. The Judge who passed the sentence coinp.iied the act of the ptlsoner to robbery with needless vio lcnte, and regretted that the law did not permit lilui to order the rascal to be flogged.

In Nova Scotia last year the expenses of Ihe several lines showed an actual loss to the government of iJlO.-lSIi. In New Ilruns. wick the profits were $08,212. In ollie-r words, on mi Investment iff .-jl2,000,000, the government icallzed the scanty sum iff iJfi7,7G0. Vet the people of Canada, un dismayed by the prospect, have authorized tlie Canada I'aetlle Company to expend if lfiO.OOO.OOO for a new- Inler-'colonlal rail road. Astonishing as It may seem, the Canadians believe that rallroa'ds ought to be run, prhnailly, for the uceoiuinodaUoii of tho jiublle, and not to make money. This novel Idea 1ms not reached our railroad magnates. No courtier has ventured to suggest it to King Tom Scott or Commo dore Vnndorbilt. Its mention would para lyo tliiir Intellect, and leave them ns be. wildcrt'd as was Louis XIV. when told that the people of Prance were not created for his pleasure, hut that ho lived to govern Ihem with justice.
