SATURDAY EVEN'G, JAN. 11, 1873.
THE RICHMOND COLLECTOKSIIIP.
We much regret that there should bo
any contest over the confirmation of Dr.
Mills as Collector of Customs at Rich
mond. His nomination has been received
with a degree of general favor, rarely
extended to any one. Dr. Mills is
universally respected, and commands the
confidence and esteem of men of all par
ties. He did not seek the office; but
was selected as a fitting representative of
the Administration and of the Republican
party. The opposition to his confirmation
comes from Senator Lewis and John Am
bler Smith. These gentlemen called upon
the Presideut yesterday, as it is under
stood, to induce him to withdraw the name
of Dr. Mil Li. Messrs. Piatt, Clements,
Hill and others called to recommend Dr.
Mills. The President declined to withdraw
tho name. He adheres to the conviction
that the nomination is a proper one, and that
a change was necessary at the time when
it wa3 made.
We do not know upon what grounds tho
confirmation of Dr. Mills if opposed. We
learn that it is not from any distrust as to
his competency but rather upon the ground
that Mr Smith claims the right to name
the Federal officers in his district, or at
least a portion of them. This claim is not
likoly to bo recognized to any great extent
either here or elsewhere. The new order
of things under the civil service takes from
the Congressman all control of Federal
appointments, and makes his recommenda
tion little more weighty than that of
other prominent Republicans. This may be
very unpleasant to our newly elected mem
bers, who have always contemplated tho
dispensation of places as among the legiti
mate rights of the Representatives. But
that day has passed, we believe, forever,
and while we are no admirer of tho Civil
Servico Reform, we certainly do not want
to see a Congressman degrade his high po
sition to a mere dispenser of patronage.
Senator Lewis has certainly a legal right to
a voice in the matter, but we trust he will
not use his power against the views of the
great body of the party here. We have
no doubt of the ultimate confirmation of
Dr. Mills.
Sad will be tho fate of the Old Dominion when
her trusted FervanUs shall lend their aid to the
tappers of her best rights, who would llleh
from Virginia the little all she has left, and
transfer it to the pockets of alien spoilers ot her
heritage.— Whig.
The above woeful jeremiad is wailed into
the legislative ear in view of the passage of
a general railroad law in Virginia. Such a
law has added hundreds of millions in
value to the real estate of Ohio and Illinois,
and has put down thousands of miles of
substantial railway, so that cheap trans
portation is brought te almost every man's
door, while grinding and grasping
monopoly has been obliged to fly their
borders and seek for special
immunity and favor in other states; and,
hence, this jeremiad of the Whig. To
build a railroad from Washington to Rich
mond, and hence to Petersburg and Wel
don, or to still further points South, aud
thereby establish a healthful competition in
railroad traffic as in all other branches of
business, is to "filch from Virginia the
little all she has left," and to transfer her
most splendid heritage (now degenerated
into a liltli railroad ring monopoly) to "the
pockets of alien spoilers." What a themo
fjr a jeremiad, mid how admirably is it
sung by the Whig .' Poor old Virginia!
threatened with the curso of railroads and
cheap transportation, and with an army of
sappers and miners who would cover her
all over with a network of iron rails, so
that- her fate would bo worse than that of
Laocoon in the toils of the serpent! All
this is to come from a general railroad law.
Aud, then, there is Eagland and Scott
two names so entirely confused in the
brain of our contemporary that it can't
distinguish one from t'other—who are bent
on making tho fate of the Old Dominion
worse than that of Sodom and Gomorrha,
if the " trusted servants " of the State (the
little railroad ring mouopoly) do not tram- I
pie the " sacred heritage " out of them, or
trample them out of the "sacred heritage,"
or both, as the case may require !
Scott, we know, is an awful bugbear in
Virginia—another Giant Grim in the path
of our true Christian gentleman of the old
Vh ginia school—but Reuben Ragland, one
of Virginia's most courteous and affable
gentlemen, who never did anything moro
terrible than to dispense a generous hospi
tality to political friend and foe alike—that
lie should assume such Gargantuan propor
tions as to frighten all the old grannies in
tho State, male aud female, out of their
wits, and into doleful jeremiads, is what
passes our poor guessing qualities to account
for. We have rarely met the gentleman
of late, but when we last saw him his face
was as mild and benevolent in its expres
sion as ever, and we are sure that if he is
another Catiline, plotting against the lib
erties of this " sovcn-hilled city" of ours,
he is the mildest mannered conspirator that
ever sought to filch the " sacred heritage "
of a people, to say nothing about little
railroad monopoly rings.
We are no champion of Mr. Ragland'd
bill, simply for the reason that we believe
the ends which he seeks would be equally
well subserved by a general railroad
law; but the idea that he is seeking
.to seal the " fate of the Old Do
minion," and turn ber over, " sacred j
heritage" and all, to tho alien spoiler
(Tom Scott, we suppose, and not the little
railroad ring monopoly) is hyperboiieally
tho grandest piece of hyperbole that ever
found hyperbolical expression in exagge
rated journalism.
During the past year, within the limits
of the United States, 7,47S miles of railroad
have bceu completed, and 0,014 miles put
under construction, making a total of
18,991 miles on which work has been
done. In no one year from 1830, when
tho first stretch of twenty-three miles
of the Baltimore] and Ohio road was
opened, down to 1871, in which year
7,453 miles of track were completed, has
so great an advance been made as in the
year just ended, and from present appear
ance the increase in all the States except
I Virginia will be even greater in the year
just begun. But building railroads in Vir
ginia' is snatching "sacred heritages"
from the people, and the only two sensible
things for the Leislature to do is, to encour
age cam-culture by offering a bounty for
the greatest number of bull-pups any one
man can raise, and to advance expensive
transportation by excluding all railroad
capital from the State in future. Virginia
would then be tho "paradise of fleas" indeed.
For everybody that wasn't eaten up by
fleas and the little railroad monopoly rings,
would ./fee the State in good earnest.
— ■
One of our amiable aud peace-loving
contemporaries heads its leading paragraph
this morning with the notable excerpt, "Let
us havo peace." As it makes its appli
cation of this excerpt entirely to tho
party '-'opposed to Radicalism," and
pleads for haimony as "the first re
quisite to insure success," we do not
see who is interfering with its peace, or
why it can't have it to its heart's content.
We are making no assault upon its citadel of
peace, and do not know the first man in the
Republican party who is. But somebody
has been talking about the next "Conserva
tive" (heaven forefend it should be other
wise nomenclatured) Governor, and has
hiuled at a possible Republican nomination
which might make things more lively than
lovely, and so our neighbor is in the "dole
ful dumps," and wants peace. Well, after
the next gubernatorial election you can
have peace, retirement, concord, and all
the blessings incident to a more useful, be
cause more retired, station.
THE INDIAN BUREAU.
The office of Commissioner of Indian
Affairs is still vacant. Several gentlemen
aro named in connection therewith. Gene
ra! Cowan has been tendered the office and
is eminently fitted for it, as he is also for
his present position which he prefers to
retain. Among those prominently men
tioned is Dr. G. M. Weeks, of New York.
Dr. Weeks is a gentieman of the highest
attainments aud combines rare qualities of
head and heart. He is intimately familiar
with the Indian character, has lived long
among them, and his views of the Indian
policy, long since matured and published,
agree with those of tho Administration.
We shall bo greatly pleased, in common
with his numerous friends over the coun
try, to see so fit an appointment made.
Many of our readers have doubtless
heard that six thousand men arc employed
on the buildings for the great Vienna Ex
position. This is a vast number, but it
may serve to show why there aro so many,
if we explain one of their ways of work
ing. They have to drive piles in somo
places to get a good foundation. In this part
of the world we do that with a machine,
driven either by steam or by gunpowder.
But in Vienna they employ thirty men and
thirty ropes to raise tho weight or hammer
to the top of the framework, from which it
falls on the head of the pile. By this in
genious arrangement the thirty men aro
able to do in three hours about as much
work as an American " pile driver" would
do in ten minutes.
In Paris there is a law that the man on
whose premises fire breaks out can receive
no insurance, while his neighbor can, and
i t is said that Paris is freer from fires than
any other laige city. Perhaps if some of
our builders, who so recklessly set up tin
der boxes in which to consume poor girls
and helpless beasts, were unable to collect
a cent of insurance when the inevitable fire
comes, they would build more carefully
and guard more securely. If our railroad
men, says tho New York Tribune, were
held strictly responsible for every life they
take into their charge, instead of being let
off with the accustomed " censure," we
should hear less frequently of telescoped
cars and broken bridges. So long as
wholesale murder is as free from punish
ment as at present, there is no wheft
a man can be safe.
Tweed's trial has commenced again in
New York. The distinguished accused is
convinced of his innocence and sanguine Of
acquittal. The conviction of Stokes, and
recent other displays of intelligence by
New York juries, ought to disturb his
equanimity, but it don't. If Stokes should
bo hung and Tweed sent to the penitentiary,
wo should think a new era had indeed
dawned on New York.
Fraudulent voting is punished in
Liverpool, which show 3, that in copying
our ballot system, England has improved
upon our practice. At the recent municipal
election, George Crowther, of nineteen
years, personated his grandfather, an octo
genarian, who could not vote, being dead,
and thereby earned imprisonment for a
year, and another man received the same
sentence for falsely personating a voter who
tas absent from the city.
Senator Roscoe Conklino's ro
miinatiou by the legislative Republican
caucus comes in the shape of a compliment
that should indeed gratify him. His nomi
nation in caucus was unanimous, and his
election by the Legislature is, of course, a
foregone and irresistible conclusion.
James Parton says he has known
women in whom tho instinct of decoration
was so strong that if they were told they
were to be hanged in the presence of
20,000 persons to-morrow, their first
thought would be, "Have I a proper hang
ling dress?"
in Washington. There were fifteen new
cases reported yesterday and many people ]
aro avoiding the street cars and public
places. The fatality comes principally from
neglect. With prompt and intelligent care
the disease is very littlej.more dangerous
than measles. Ti.e patient must eat noth
ing but simple food, be kept warm and
quiet, and the pustules covered from the
air with some antiseptic mixture, as char
coal aud salt. There is danger of conta
gion from the time the discaso is fairly de
veloped till all odor ceases. We quote
from the Washington Star some items
from the board of health:
domestic animals as dissemina
tors OF SMALL-POX.
The secretary read a communication
from "a citizen" respectfully suggesting
I where there are dogs and cats con
with houses where there are small
itients located they be exterminated,
ider this is a necessary measure to
it the spread of the disease, as I no
i dog going in ami out the back yard
house corner of Ninth and C_ streets
rest, and associating or mixing with
logs. Is not this a good way to dis
ite the epidemic?"
THE small-pox service.
Verdi reported that ho had given
for the building of extension wings
small-pox hospital, which are now in
ss of erection by the contractors,
3. Smith & Co., and that they will
idy to occupy by Saturday. His
was approved,
health officer leported that he had
id the officer whose duty it is to bury
ad from small-pox to make charges
h families as desired their friends mm
m private burial grounds at the same
is were made by undertakers. This
was approved. Also, that he had
id the same officer to surround all
i with carbonate of lime, or in lieu of
se a double coffin as a precautionary
ire. Considerable discussion follow
-3 announcement, Messrs. Langston,
jry, and Cox opposing it. Dr. Cox
c was opposed to forcing citizens to
r lime dust about their deceased
s; he thought some other suitable
jctant should be used instead. No
really was necessary but an ordinary
to isolate tlie contagion. Mr. Mar
said it was not right to force poor
people to pay for a double coffin, as many
of them were not able to pay for a single
one. Mr. Langston agreed with both Mr.
Marbury and Dr. Cox. The action of the
health officer was disapproved.
