stingy, and cruel ? We liopo not. Is lie
getting poort No! The President and
the Secretary of the Treasury have just told
tu no! told in that tho treasury Is full
too full, and that the tariff must be rcduc
cJ in order (o cut oil the revenue. What,
then? Is this a now measure of tnoJcrn
democratic "retrenchment and reform ?"
What! beginning upon tho hard woiking
New Kngland mechanic?, and in December!
whllo in the genial air of Washington the
President docs not have enough at $25,00,
a Tear and a houso to live in and they aro i
talkinrrnf fivinirliimnnnltior rpsiilnnpn flir
summer use ; the Secretaries pocket their
SG000 per annum and keep coaches; the i
foreign ministers are aking for higher pay,
and are likely to pet a larrre incrensn ; tho
judges ditto; and finally members of Con
gross aro not satielicd with for (to a
majority of them) about four hour's labor
per diem, and Senator Dadger has proposed
to raiso their pay. And so, with all this
going on at Washington, orders aro issued
at Washington to cut off the day laborers in
New England 11 per cent. Justice, mercy,
charity all forbid it. Rather let tho gov
ernment shorten tho hours of labor through
tho winter, and increase tho number of men
employed. If the pay to each individual is
to bo cut down, at least let the number of
tho laborers bo increased, so that the for
mer amount of wages may givo bread to
more famishing souls. So shall tho shock
ing contrast between tho fat salaried men at
Washington and thu lean laborers of Char
lostown be tempered with just enough of a '
very cold sorlof charity to repress popular
indignation. Winter is not tho time to cut
down the wages of men who cam their liv
ing by honest industry; mid least nf all
should the government try the experiment
with n full Trcssuiy.
