Mil l . 1 1i r ri l-miiy mm mm .1 irT -n nn rr n OI R WAKIIIXUTOX LETTER. . DcocmV-r IS, 1S72, TnE law abolishing the offices of Internal Revenue Assessors and As sistant Apsepsor, vvbich passed tbe lower House of CongTcss ten days since has also passed the Senate, and only requires the President's signa ture to Income a law. liovEitxo Geaby has issued a proclamation setting forth that the Commissioners of the Sinkinpr Fund, Francis Jobdax, John F. IIart raxit and Robert W. Mackey, re port and certify, that during the year commencing Ioc., lft IiS 1 and end ing Nov. 30th, 182. Tteo millions four hundred an J teventy-fiijr thoug and two hundred and thirteen dollar and fifty ceidg ($2,4:C,213,50) of the State debt has been paid and extin guished. A few more years of Re publican rule will entirely wipe out our State debt, and with it all taxa tion for State purposes, leaving the people of this Commonwealth, the! most prosperous and the least taxed of any State in the Union. Our readers w ill remember that after the October election the Democ racy were quite liberal in their charg es that the Hon. L. D. Shoemaker and other leading Republicans of Luzerne county had resorted to brib ery to make votes for tbe Republican State ticket Mr. Shoemaker and the other Republicans thus charged, de manded a legal investigation of their acts, which has just been had, and which fully exculpates them from all the charges brought against them The prosecution was not able to sus tain a single point in this allegation and the acnuital of Mr. Shoemaker and his associate was complete. The same result would attend similar charges made against Republicans in other parts of the State, if brought to a legal trial. The future of the Xtw York Tri bune is just now a subject of interest and of much speculation among jour nalists as well as the public general ly. That the Tribune fell away from its high estate during the late campaign, under the editorial man agement of Mr. Whitelaw Reid is an undeniable fact, and its loss of caste and influence, we candidly be lieve, did much to hasten the sad and tragic death of its original founder. It is a very valuable property, de pendent however upon public good will and confidence, and its proprie tors, like sensible business men, are casting about for a fitting successor to its dead editor-in-chief. A number of prominent newspaper men have loen spoken of as Mr. Greeley's probable successor, but it appears to be a settled fact that tbe position has been offered to Vice President Col fax, and that he is now in negotia tion with the stockholders. Mr. Col fax is an experienced journalist and a vigorous writer, and while not pos sessing the ability of Mr. Greeley, his connection with the paper would do much towards restoring it to pub lic conGdencc and at the same time prove the shrewd business tact of its managers, for of course Mr. Colfax would not identify himself with it, unless it resumed its former position within the fold of the Republican party. We presume that a few days will decide the matter, as it is under stood that with the usual new year prospectus the future editorial man agement and proposed policy of the journal will be announced. Senator Pomeroy Las introduced a bijl looking to the suppression of the traffic in ardent spirits in the District of Columbia and the Nation al Territories' over which Congress has power. The movement is said to originate with the National Temper ance Society and contemplates the most stringent measures against the traffic in intoxicating liquors. The bill provides : First. That no persou shall be, al lowed to manufacture, import, sell, exchange, barter, give, or dispose of any intoxicating liquors, to be used as a beverage in the Territories of the United States or 5n the District of Columbia. Second. That regularly licensed druggists niay sell for medicinal and scientiGc purposes and mechanic arts only : provided, that they shall label and mark distinctly, as other poisons and medicines, and keep a book of registry, showing the name of person to whom delivered, the quantity, da:e of sale, and on whose order or pre scription the sale was made, and s rich registry to be submitted as re quired to the inspection of the Roard of Police in this district, or before any comrt in a trial at law. Third. That any licensed drug gists or other persons, violating the provisions of this act, shall be subject to a fine f not less than $500, and to an imprisonment of three months, and, in default of payment of the fine, to three months additional imprisonment, and to be also liable for all damages occuring from the sale or illegal disposal of intoxicating liquors as a beverage. ry hours. Prayer and preaching in the churches, temperance societies in the salAialh schools, and jftitions to the Constitutional Conve t.on to insert a prohibitory e!use in the forthcoming constitution were recom mended, and this shambling, limp ing, half-scared resolution, on the sub ject of the fast approaching contest invited and insisted upon by them selves, was passed : Resolved, That the Legislature, according to the praver of many thousands of petitioners, havinggiven the opportunity to vote upon the question of licenses, in the counties and cities of the Commonwealth, on the third Friday of March, 1873 next, this Convention holding that the result of such a vote cannot be accept ed by the friends of Temperance as a test of the sentiments of the people on the questions involved, and doubt ing the efficiency of the measure to accomplish the suppression of the liq uor trade, but hopeful that the effort will tend to that end. and knowing that enemies will interpret non-action to mean opposition do nevertheless recommend the embracing of the oc casion to vote against the longer con tinuance of the legality of a business so baneful in its influence and so in jurious to the religious, social, indus trial and pecuniary interests of the people as the liquor traffic in all the past has proven to be. What is there practical in all this ? Is the public car to bo forever vexed with this constant, unremitting daw dle about an evil which all sane men admit, and which moral suasion has signally failed to remedy f If it can be suppressed only by law, then vote for tbe law, and use your best efforts to induce others so to do. If busi ncss is meant then organize for it, and fight at the polls fur your convic tions. Don't give up the fight in ad vance, and admit coming defeat by a half-hearted resolution trying to break your fall. Such moral cowardice is contemptible. This is not a religious cause, and the attempt to make it so only weakens it. Thousands of men counted irreligious, and over whom the churches have no influence, will vote for local option. It is a great social reform in its broadest sense, looking to the good of the entire State, and cannot be dwarfed nor limited by petty associations nor en forced by mouthing declaratious. The opportunity is waiting, the hour is ripe fur action. The cause should be presented to the people, and worked for at the polls, as any other cause is worked for, on its mer its. And vet this State Convention,as- suniing to have charge of the subject, shows the white feather in the only resolution it passed referring to the decision, which it invited, at the bal lot box. What would be thought and said of a political convention that would thus act, on the eve of an imiorant campaign ? The truth is this Pittsbnrgh Convention was a dead failure, and our conviction is, not intending to be personal, that its leading members were so wrapped up in their own individuality, that they overlooked the practical object of their assemblage ; or they fear, and have no stomach for the battle they invoked. letter from Jwdg-e ! Annoanrlnr HI RniKMliM- Action of the Court. Washington, Dec. 12, 1ST2. I'VULIC lands and education. The President's measure regarding the proceeds of sales of public lands lor common school puqoses, has pass ed the House, and will come up in the Senate in a few days. It should be put through without delay as a meas ure of necessity and justice to the millions or youth who at present are deprived of a common school educa tion, cspeciallr in the feouthcrn states. The stability of Republican govern ment mar depend on the success of the bill, "its terms provide for the distribution of the fund among all the States, for the first five years, in pro portion to their illiteracy as shown by the census; and after five years, the distribution is to be according to proportionate school attendance in the several states, in the southern states, the effect of the operation of the law must be a sure and early return to fra ternal relations with the other states. The impulse of the measure in that direction is stated by Mr. Scars, the manager of the Pcabody fund, as very important and beneficial to the peace of the country. The fact that Con gress and the President show a prae tical and substantial interest in the education and prosperity of the South ern people by proposing such liberal ity in lifting from their shoulders the burden of ignorance on the part of tbe white and black masses, can not fail of appreciation by their influential cit izens. After five vcars of successful working of common scLools in those states, the terrorism of ignorance will no longer threaten the peace of the country as it now does. 1 ho masses will know their rights, and knowing, dare maintain them against such dem agogues ns now presume to lead them only to bring government and order into chaos. So far as the public lands arc con cerned, if monopolies or individuals desire them under the proposed law, they can be secured upon payment of the value a3 heretofore, except that the giving away of the lands to mon opolists for private emolument and without a consideration will be pre vented in future. The proceeds of the sale of lands during the past fiscal year amounted to $2,500,000, and this will be likely to be maintained during the next generation, at the end of which period there will bo no excuse for any man born or reared in the country wanting a respectable educa tion. There appears to be nothing so important now before the country as the prompt passage of this bill into a law. For an utterly impracticable body, commend us' to an assemblage of 'Ministers of the Gospel.' As a gener al rule, these gentlemen have such an abiding faith in the efficacy of exhor tation and prayer that they almost totally ignore any other method of at taining an end, and Lence arc con stantly outwitted by "men of the world'' who promptly act, while they are theorising. We are led to these remarks by having just read the pro ceedings of the State Temperance Convention which was in session last week at Pittsburgh. J udging from the number of icverends that figured throughout the record, they were in a large majority in the Convention, or else, as the moot fluent talkers they "run the machine." Address after address was made on the evil of in temperance, and the sure calamities, social, moral, political and ccuniary following in its train. Personal rem iniscences, htale anecdotes and cum bersome statistics, consumed the wea- Wasiiixutox, December 10. In the Supreme Court of the Lnited States the Chief Justice yesterday made the following announcement: The court has received through the Chief Justice a letter from Justice Xelson announcina: his resignation of his office as one of the Associate Jus tices. I have transmitted to bun a letter expressing their feelings on flic .i .11.. occasion, ana oirect uom letters to uc ntered on Uic minutes. The letters are as follows : LETTER Or JIDUB XELSON. Cooi-ERSTowx, November 2S, 1872. Mv Dear Chief Justice : The mail that carries these lines to you carries my resignation of the office of Asso ciate Justice of the Supreme Court. I fart from my brethren with regret, and retire from an occupation which has been the bight of my ambition for much the largest part of my life, not from choice, but for the reason that age and infirmity have disabled me from the jK-rformancc of a full share of its duties.

Dear Rrother: We have received with deep sensibility your letter an nouncing your resignation of the post you have so long anJ so worthily filled. We greatly regret that we are no more to have the benefit of your long experience, mature wisdom and large learning in conference, and that the profession and country must lose the fruits of them in decisions of the court. You carry with you in your retirement a reverent and uni versal affection given to few men.: The bar are unanimous in their eulo gies, and we, your brethren of the bcuch, arc not behind the bar in our, sense of your great services, your sterling integrity and your constant lfnevolence. May our Father in Heaven give you many days in which to enjoy the affections of family, friends and countrymen which cluster around you. Signed by the Chief Justice and Associate Justices. ' LOUISIANA RAMPANT. The reckless conduct of parties in Louisiana has brought on a collision of authority between two factions who claim to control the state gov ernment armouth, who so outrag ed common sense and common decen cv bv fixing up a political counting machine wherewith to trillc with the popular vote, has been impeached by the alleged legislature, while he in turn has issued a proclamation out lawing all who oppose him. The ex act merits of the controversy are so involved in fog and doubt, that little is known here as to the legal status of the respective parties. It is now thought that the President will refer the whole matter to Congress in a few days. Alabama is little better con trolled, and the course pursued bv politicians in these two States is a, sad commentary on the want of education and consequent inability for self-erov- crnment existing iu sonic portions of the bouth. CONGlESSIOXAL ROW. The House 3-esterday was the the atre of quite a tempest of spleen on the part of several opposition mem bers, directed against Mr. Townsend, of Pennsylvania, who opposed the soldiers' and sailors' bounty land bill, and presented a protest from the Grand Army of the Republic of Pennsylva nia. He was denounced as no soldier by Hon. Sam. Randall, whose servi ces for thirty days a-soldiering in and around Harrisburg, was made a point of. His military career had been known heretofore, and his party made all the capital that could be madcut of this valor of the redoubtable head of the Democratic congressional com mittee, shown as a private in the home guards. A Terrible Accident. Gaspe Ray, Quebec, Friday, De cember 5. 1872. The Jane Merri man. a fishinc schooner, arrived here last niirht from Caie Whittle, Labra dor, having touched at East Cape, on the Island of Anticosta, curing violent storm which prevailed near that coast on November 26. The Jane.Merriman lost the most useful portion of ber forward rigging, an her main-mast was badly sprung. O reaching East Cape she was safely harbored. Ihc few families who in habit that desolate island were found bv Captain liar, of the schooner, to be in state of utter consternation owing to a terrible disaster which had taken place on the previous night The highest and principal light house of Anticosta had been dashed into heap of ruins by the terrific hurri cane which raged on the coast Not even the wall near the base of the pile was left. All was destroyed, and nothing was left on the tall and soli tary pile but a huge heap of bricks, stones, iron work and mortar. Hard br the ill fated light house stood snug dwelling, the home of one Ed mund Barter, and his family, consist ing of a wife and 6ix children. The ounce snujr dwelling was all but as complete a ruin as the light house, and of Edmund liarter and his wife and six children, eight bruised and almost unrecognizable corpses were all that were left The few lonesome inhabitants of East Cape seemed, by their tenderness toward and sorrow for the dead, to have entertained vcrv genial feelings for poor Darter and his family while they lived. I he bodies were conveyed to the house of a resident who generally performed such religious rites as were practised bv the solitary inhabitants. Several small boats were driven ashore at East Cape, and the people there de scribe tho hurricane as most terrible and destructive. Tbe Jane Merriman got away on the morning of the 27th ult, and brought ber load of herring, cod and salmon safe homo to Gaspe Lay. limeg. MaaMM-tiUHCtlft. Boston, Dec. 11. In the Massachusetts House to day Mr. Hovt, of Athol, offered the following preamble and resolution, which were referred to the Committee on Federal Relations : Wiereas, Hon. Charles Sumner, a Senator from Massachusetts, has pro posed on the floor of the Lnited States Senate to erase from the flags of the Republic and from the register of the army all inscriptions, mcmen toes, and tokens of battles anu vic tories of the Uniou arms in the late war of the rebellion : Resolved, That this attempt to de grade the loyal soldiers of the nation and their grand achievements meets with our unqualified condemnation, and merits the disapproval of the people of this Commonwealth thus misrepresented. Kndtlcn Death of Edwin Forrest. Philadelphia, December 12. Edwin Forrest, the tragedian, fell dead this morning while dressing at his residence on North Broad street. Forrest's servants repaired to his room before ten o'clock this morning, as it was later than his usual hour for cominff down. They found him lying on the bed apparently suffering from apoplexy. Forrest had been ex ercising with dumb bells, and had cv idently partly completed dressing, having been adjusting bis necktie when overpowered. He died In about half an hour after being dis covered. He leaves no immediate relations, his only sister having died several years since. "Don't von remember the next word in your lesson ? It's the word after cheese. What comc3 after cheese ?" .

The Italy, from Liverpool, arrived yester day, bringing 8C2 immigrant passen gers, of which nearly 500 were Ital ians in an extreme state of destitution. The authorities at Castle Garden are in a quandary as to their disposition, and aver that they are as a general thing unable to earn anything after their arrival, and that at present they re without means of any kind. Sev eral of the immigrants have been sent io Ward's Island, where the' arc supported bv the city.

A sen sation was created this morning at Elizabethtown, Ky., forty-Gve miles from this city, by the commencement of a suit in behalf of u llliam M Lent, of San Francisco, against Philip Arnold, John Slack and other parties engaged in the recent diamond operations in Colorado, for $35,000. The safe at Arnold's residence, in Elizabethtown, and valuables held by 1 homas, 1'ark & Co., of that place, were attached upon an affidavit of Lent, through his counsel, alleging that the above Bum was obtained from him by Arnold and Slack by means, in the language of the affida vit, of fraudulent representations by them to the plaintiff in reference to diamonds, rubies and emeralds being found upon lands in certain districts of country, to wit : In Colorado Territory, which representations were in pursuance of a conspiracy between Arnold, Slack and others, for the pur pose of deceiving and misleading the plaintiff and the public gcncraliy in reference to the value of said lands, and by means of which Arnold and Slack fraudulently obtained from the plaintiff the consideration of sales by them to the plaintiff of information of the locality of said lands, and of said right of discovery of the locality of Faid precious stones. No such diamonds, rubies and emeralds were found upon or in any such land, but were scattered and planted therein and thereon by said Arnold aiid Slack and their confederates, for the purpose of deceiving and defrauding the plain tiff and public at large, by inducing the belief that said diamands and other precious stones were found upon and in said lands in their natural for mation and production. The plaintiff says the defendant, rhino Arnold, county, igrate to America by promises of agents of a so-called colonization society. The Italian government is also reported to be not unfavorable to the general exodus. A well-informed western paper says : "France is a tinder-box, and President Thiers is sitting on the safety valve." 1 summons cannot be served upon him ; has disposed or his property with fraudulent intent to cheat, hinder and delay his creditors, and is about to sell, convey and otherwise dispose of his property with the same intent.

A proposition to call a convention to amend the State constitution of New Jersey is being discussed in the New Jersey papers. The Trenton Gazette thinks there are several par ticulars in which tbe constitution needs amending. Here is a good business-like epi taph : "Here lies Jane Smith, wife of Thomas Smith, marble cutter.
