' Postmaster General James has resigned, to take effect on the last day of this month. T.EX. V. S. Grant and Mrs. Grant arc to be the guests of the President during the month of January. The wife and daughter of Chief Justice Waite are the leaders in charitable movement at the cap ital. A man in Southern Kansas tried the old experiment of melting a bul let out of a gun the other day. He leaves a family. The paper on which the Presi dent's message was written had a heavy black border and was fasten ed with black tape. Over 2,500 bills have already been introduced into Congress, and the States have not yet been all cilled. This looks like cutting out a good deal of work for the session. II. II. TvIddleherger has been unanimously nominated for U. S. Senator, by the Readjuster members of the Virginia IiCgislature. Like Mahone, he will, when elected, vote against the Kourbon Democracy. Senator Sherman has introduced a bill into the Senate for refunding 8373,000,000 of the public debt at three per cent. Many Senators are said to look upon the bill favorably, but Secretary Folger thinks the rate too low. I'xnEit the vigorous prosecution of Attorney General Palmer, two of the death rattle insurance companies of this State have given up the ghost one at Hanover, York county, and the other the "State Capital" at llarrisburg. Both companies were dissolved by order of the Court. The American Bar Association, now in session at Washington, are considering means to expedite busi ness in the Supreme Court of the United States. The docket of the the court is more than three years in arrears, and new cases are contin ually accumulating. Senator Wixixjm has introduced a bill for the division of Dakota and the admission of the Southern half as a State, and Senator Ingalls pro poses to admit New Mexico .as a State. No doubt that propositions to admit Utah and Washington Territories will be forthcoming dar ing the present session. It is telegraphed from Washing ton that ex-Secretary Blaine is lend ing himself to the work of founding a new party, the Southern part of which is to be composed of the Bourbon Democracy. Those that are bo anxious to divide and dissolve the Republican party, can take all the stock in this story that they please. The President has nominated Benjamin Harris Brewster, of Phila delphia, Attorney General of the United States, in place of Wayne MacVeagh, Esq., resigned. Mr. Brewster is one of the ablest lawyers of this State. He was formerly At torney General of this Common wealth, and was retained as counsel for the Government in the Star Route cases. In the investigation at Harris burg, of the affairs of the State Cap ital Mutual Relief Association, one of the graveyard insurance compa nies, it was shown that the directors 1 1 - . t f ,i 0 had, in the ten months of the pres- ent year, voted themselves So2,0. W. The by-laws provided that a directorship coald be disposed of for cash, and could be transmitted to the director's heirs or assignees. A r.n.L has been introduced in the Senate by Mr. Edmunds, to provide for defraying the extraordinary ex penses incurred in conseauence of the assault upon the late President Garfield ; it authorir.es the Secreta ry of the Treasury to pay the nec essary and reasonable exjenses in curred in behalf of the Lite Presi dent, provided the aggregate sum al lowed and paid doos not exceed - 1 00,000. The success of ihe Mahone re licllion against Democratic Bour Lonisoi in Virginia, is already bear ing lruit in other southern states. Independent movement, looking to a coalition with the Republicans, are being organized in Carolina and Texas. It only requires a few lead ers with the brain and pluck of Ma hone to effectually break the politi cal despotism that has made a mockery of elections and kept the couth poltdly Democratic. Ma.

" Hurrah ! hurrah '. the couutry's rising For Harrv Clay and Frvl tDghuysen." The " Independent " press of this State is now mightily stirred up over a silly story just given circula tion by the Philadelphia Timet, to the effect that Senator Cameron and some of his friends at Washington have decided to nominate General Beaver for Governor of this State, and that the President has pledged hiumlf to use all his patronage to effect that object A grain of com mon sense should teach any one that this story was concocted for political effect Cameron and some of his friends may be favorable to Beaver's nomination, and so are hundreds of other Republicans in the State, but the underlying idea of this invention was to raise the cry of "ring candidate" against the maimed and gallant General. The idea that the President would use the patronage of the Federal Gov ernment for 6uch a purpose is as preposterous as to suppose that Senator Cameron would ask him to do so. It is rather mortifying that a portion of the Republican press of the State should so inconsiderately give credence to a silly story, gotten up 6olely to injure a prominent can didate of their own party. From President and Senators, through all grades of writers for the public, down to the omniscient newspaper scribe, the reform of the civil service is just now the theme of consideration. Theorizing is aB bountiful as the sunshine; practical, tangible suggestions, appealing to the indsment and the business sense of the community, are as scarce as are flies in mid-winter. Political dilettante like" George W. Curtis, have filled the public ear with the incessant drone of an ideal civil service, and partisan politicians have deplored the power of patron age, and speculated on possible re form, with a keen eye to party ad vantage, but with a dull apprehen sion of the necessities of the situa- i..n. Amid all this confusion of ideas, and paucity of thought, on a subject engrossing so much of pres ent public attention, comes with a refreshing sense of noteworthiness and practical ability from General Green B. Raum, the. Commissioner of Internal Revenue, the first credit able discussion of civil service re form, a recognition of the situation, and recommendations for the estab lishment of regulations in the inter est of reform, within the pale of practical politics, that has yet come under our observation. General Raum has had years of experience as the head of an important bureau in the Treasury Department, which by his administrative ability, busi ness capacity, and skill he has made a model worthy of imitation in all other branches of the public service, and it is evident that he has studied the subject of civil service reform earnestly and carefully. His sug gestions aie born of a knowledge of the necessities and capacities of our present system, matured by reflec tion &nd experience, and 6hould have great weight with his own par ty at least. We have no room for the induc tion and arguments by which he ar rives at Ins conclusions, and our readers must therefore be content with the following synopsis of his ideas : 1. The establishment of a term of offlce of four years for subordinate officer, clerks, and employe. 2 Kciuiring all applicants for appointe nient to be woll indorsed as to character, and to stand a proper, examination as to at tainments. 3. A temporary appointment for one year, on trial, 4. If found worthy, the temporary officer i or ciert 10 oe appointed itvr inree years, tne . . f term of four vear. ' I ii.

Promotions to lie upon merit, ascer tained by examination and ccrtiiied t-j by the head of the bureau. K. Causes for removal to be dishonesty, incapacity, neglect of dutv. insubordination. intemperance, immorality, or inability , 'Arsons retiring, without fault, to re- j 10. Kuliordinate officers, clerks, and em j ployes. retired, withmrt fault, after a service ot four y tars, to receive retiring y, equal ; to on j month's pay ' i ,. r . : for each year and pro rifi fur each fraction of a year of inw. tel The principle sujKirwtcd could reul 'f be applied to the entire civil aerviee ,u the country. In addition to these general view on the subject of appointments, General R aum renews the recom mendation made by him in his an nual report for the year ended June 30th, 1877, in relation to the term of office for Collectors, as follows : I rail your attention to the tact that the law rreatiug the office of collector of inter nal revenue tixes no tenure to the office. In my opinion it in altogether desirable that the term of thin office should be fixed at four years. It often occurs that when a col lector has served for longer period than four years, constant effort are being made for his removal ; and many officers., howev er well they may have diwhareed tkeir dja tiea, feel, after a four vear's service, bugs tain a to the length of time Uiev will be re tained in office. Where an officer U ap pointed for a term of four yean he has a ripht to expect that if he perform bis duty diligently and faithfully be will not be dis turbed until kit term expires, and this feel ing of security I tf-ard as an important ele ment in maintaining Ood public service. From my limited obserrhCtn in public life, I have come to the conclusion that when it can reasonably be done there should be a fixed tenure of all officers of the go eminent. I have the honor to recommend tbt ' ped fixuiir the tenure f lomoeolall .coecjors of internal revena ! hereaUerapiMinJed at a term of four years. Of course we do jwt jnean to be understood that the suggestions of General Raum embodv th entire sum and substance of the much de sired reform in jour .tiril service, but they are eminently practical, and would, if adopted, be ft loig strike towards the solution of the mooted problem. The message of the Pres ident exhibits the same lino of thought, and it is to be hoped that Congress will approach the subject, and discuss it in a spirit looking solely to the public good, turning neither to the right nor to the left, and heeding not the jibes or sneers of partisans, or the teachings of men outside tif practical politics. crixixGs. All through the south the bour bons arc begging the young men not to desert them, but to 'stand fast by the grand old democratic party.' The young men have stood long enough and arc preparing now to go forward. They have clung to a dead past too long tlready. A little more than tJ.OOO miles of new railroad have been constructed in the United States during the present year, which is more than was ever before built in any one season, the nearest approach being in 1872, when 5,.)32 miles were con structed. The mileage in 1SS0 was 4,940 miles. The electric light is the light for j villages. It requires for its prodnc- j tion no costly plant like gas works, tanks and pipes. The electric fluid j is carried to the point of combus tion by wires. Aurora, Illinois, is i beautifully lighted by a system of six electric towers made of iron rods and net work, each 130 feet high. These are crowned with electric lamps of 2000 candle power each, or equal to 125 gas jets. The cost com pie for each tower and apparatus is about $1000. One electric tower lamp, fed by soft coal at S3 per ton. rives a 2000-candle light at 23 cents per hour a ratio of 2 to 50 com pared to a corresponding use of gas light Mr. J. D. McKee, chairman of the Pennsylvania State Committee of the Citizens' Republican Associa tion, has issued an address to the Independent Republicans ol Penn sylvania, inviting them to sond rep resentatives from each county to a state conference, to be held in Phil adelphia on Thursday, January 13, to take into consideration the wis dom of placing in nomination prop er persons for the offices of governor, secretary of the internal affairs and Supreme Court judges, and such other matters as may come before the conference looking to the over throw of ''boss-rule." LoniLLAitn's projected new line of steel American-buiit first-class pas senger steamers, to be exclusively de voted to the passenger trade between New York and Europe, is said now to be an assured fact, all the capital having been suschImhI, and it is announced that the ships are to be built on the Delaware River. The latest proposition is to save twelve hours tjme, making the Amer.can port of entry and depart ure at the cast end of Long Island to connect with New York by rail way. But if that be advisable, it might perhaps be still better to run a line to Boston, which is nearer to Europe than Long Island. The ef fort now appears to be to reduce the running time to five days. Mr. Raphael Phmpellv, of the Census Department, in his prelimi nary report on the production of iron ore in the United States in the year ending June 1, 180, puU the total product of 805 establishments, at 7,001,329 tons, valued at $20,470, 746. These establishments, situated in 135 counties, pay in wages an nually $9,535,117 to 31,063 employ es. The amount of working capital is put at $4,850,763 ; value of plant, $3,657,375; value of real estate, $43,274,-140; total capital employed and invested, $61,782,237. Of the States producing the most iron Pennsylvania comes first, with a maximum yearly capacity of 3,403, 506 tons ; Michigan next, with 2, 223,365 tons; New York, with 2, 119,129 tons; New Jersey, with 1, 487,829 tons; Virginia, with 1,404, 524 tons. In the product of the census year Michigan stood first and Pennsylvania second. What the Garfield Monument Committee Want. Fund Cleveland, Dec. 15. The follow ing statement is made by the Cleve- i land committee in answer to many inquires ; "The Garfield monu ment Fund Committee desire to raise $250,000 for the purpose of erecting an appropriate monument at the late President grave. Of this amount over $-31 ,0 M) has already been subscribed by the citizens of Cleveland.

They are not goo. ! enough Republicans to. await some hostile act on the part of the President before turning their local batteries against him. Demo cratic and so called Independent' newspapers are being" used to create in advance a feeling of enmity on the part of Republicans against the Administration. A great hue and cry has recently been made in - cer tain Pennsylvania newspapers re garding a general movement of the Stalwarts on all the federal offices in the State, and the ' name of the President has been unwarrantably dragged into the middle. As he is averred to have pledgdd the support ot his administration to the Stal wart clique in State politics ; not only so far as giving them the spoils of office is concerned, but to use his posision to advance the nomination of Gen. Beaver for Governor. It is, icrhaps, needless to deny that the 'resident has ever promised, or agreed, or entered into any under standing of any desire on his part to further the interest of General Bea ver or any other man for any posi tion in the gift of the voters of Penn sylvania, or any other State. It can beauthoritively said that lie has never been approached on the sub ject and will take no part in the movement on behalf of any candi dates for any local office. He be lieves the people of Pennsylvania are competent to nominate and elect their State officers as they see fit without interference on the part of outsiders. So far as appointments to Federal offices are concerned the President's friends think it only fair that criticism should wait until ap pointments are made before com plaining. , ' l ui tufc Grand Opera House IJu rued CoLi'Muus, O., Dec. 16. About threeo'clock this morning fire, which originated at one of the furnaces at the Grand Opera House, crept up to the audience room, and started a blazo which entirely destroyed the interior of the building.

WAsirr.vrrox, Dec. 15. It is now report :d that Mrs Garfield has fre quently spoken of one feature above all others in the President's treat ment, that she regretted the most. This was the fact that the President was never allowed to talk about the danger of death, or to speak as he would have done had he been allow ed to think that he was going to die. Whenever he approached this subject he was stopped in his talk ing, and diverted from it by admo nitions 4iNot to lose courage." Mrs. Garfield says that often she wanted to talk to the President Upon mat ters which it was almost imperative that there f-hould be conversation before he dijd but she restrained herself, and the President passed away without her having that op portunit'. .

She seemed on the threshold of a long and happy mar ried life, united to a gentleman in every way worthy of her, and thor oughly devoted to her.

Three of the most respectable citi zens, the Postmaster and two physi cians vouch for the following, which occurred near this city Saturday : A boy about twelve years of age, nam ed John Maurer, attempted to steal a ride on a freight train going north on the Wabash, by hanging on the bumpers of the caboose. When he tried to alight the train was going at a high rate of speed down grade, and he struck his head with such force as to break his skull. A piece of the skull over the right eye, about two inches square, was en tirely detached and lost, several smaller pieces beingjdriven down on the brain and under the sound por tion of the skull.
