EDWARD SCTLU KJitor nnd Proprietor. VKliNFM'.W. -Inn. J. isn . 1 "hi: Treasurer of South Iakota has 4 lit out" with ir.:v than SM.fMtof the Slate's inonoy, leaving the Treas ury entirely Imnkrupt. He was elected l.y the lK in.x ratsaiiil his term of office was a!i:t to ixj'ire. "Where is lie V" is now the Imrninfr tUestion. The citizens of Hellofonte and Centre county, without distinction of party, r;uv or color, turned out on Friday last to tender a farewell reception to Oov ernor Hastings and family, prior to their departure for IIarris!iurr. "Our Pan" is an immense social favorite with his neiejihors. Any kind of a financial hill that ean lie squeezed throuirh C'onfrre is what t'lcvvlaml ami Carlisle are now pray ing for. They are as anxious as the oM loai.l who went to the woods to pray for a hi!!aiiL When an old owl i:i the tr-v-top scrcechi-d out "to who, to who," she lifted up her voice and ex claimed : "Anylxxiy, Lord." TiiK utur ina'oility of this I Vmoerat ic 'onrrre-'s to frame and pass a bill that uii! relieve the pinse-nt deplorable conditio:! of the Treasury and provide for the expenses' of tiie Government, is so apparent that there is little doubt the President will have to call theeom injr K;-i.i!'lie::n Congress together in extra s-.-i'in, to secure such legislation as will re-tore contidetict' in t!ie iihility of the Government to provide for its debts and imvt current expenses. It can't he said of Congri-ssnian Sil ly, of the F.rie district, that "he is a icmocrat without jruile." In a sjicech in the House, l:i.-t week, he touched up the President ia the following choice language : " It has eonie to a tihie, Mr. :-io:tkcr, when the Government of this icoplc requires something more than a combination of brains, U'ily and brass." And, tell it not in Gath, this coarse sally was received with rounds f applause by his Democratic col leairucs. It looks to lie inevitable now that Huothcr issue of liuls will soon have to In- placed ujxm the market to meet tic- demands ujniji the Treasury. Iur ini: the administration of the finances by the Iw-puhlican psrty the national 'eU was r.-duvd by millions every irotith, but now it is lx::ig constantly increased. Already -1 i ,J , have l-eeii added to our debt by this Admin istration and there is now a deficit of many millions in the Treasury, which can only lie met by the sale of a liew bateh of bonds. Tin; condition of afiairs in Tennessee j;i:-t now r.i-a'.ls the story of the old 'sipiire who gave judgment "agin the defendant for and cost-.' i'.iit, 'sipiiiv, said the defeti. Lint's attorney, 'that's ix-yond your jurisdiction ; you can't iio iL"' The thunder I can't, said the 'squire, writing in his docket. "Don't you me doin'it?" The Kepnliliii'iis of Tennessee, at the Lite -lection, carried the State for Hciiry Clay I-Ivans for Governor. The iKims rat-, having the legislature, refuse to count .".nil d'-clare the V"te. You can't do it, say the I.'epubliean-, It is mi-o!is:i''::jeii.-,. The thunder we can't, reply the I el:nH-rats. "iKm't you see ns doin' it V And so they refuse to count the vote and the present IVmo ratic iover-;or ho! Is on to the oflic. Kill 1:I.jia:- iioiilioin l'iiilalelphia :tre in a disrupted condition. At the last moment the Ward Combine, head ed by "Dave" Martin, dumped the slated candidate for Mayor Senator IVnrose and p.:t up City Solicitor Warwick. The latter was nominated with a hurrah, but the Penrose jieopic refused to make his nomination unani mous, charging that Martin had sold out their candidate and was guilty of liet raying the confidence of his friends. Senator 'i:iy was appealed to to aid Penrose and hurried from Washington to Philadelphia for that piirioe. It is reported that he and Martin iuanvicd and thai it w ill lie war to the knife U twceii them from this time forward. As a result of the Republican snarl the Demis-rats and anti-Warwick Kepubli can will proliably unite uimii Gover nor Pattison a their candidate. The Philadelphia 1'imm is growing hyster ical ever the matter and is laboring to widen tiie breach in the hoie that the Ik-mocrils will win in that stronghold of Republicanism. Willi.?: history shows that measures v. ere advocated or endorsed by former Presidents, there is no iustutnv of a Pres'iieiit lieimr so erushingly sat upon i'V Uilh branches of Coit'rress as the present Chief Magistrate. In almost very instance his policies, although championed personally, have Ivcn failures. His attesiipt to restore to her throne the (Jiiecii of the Sandwich Isl ands was a notorious failure. Hisctlorts ia Ivhalf of the sihvr purchasing clause of the Sherman Act Would have Jut-li a signal failure had not the Re publicans come to his aid and saved him from defeat by his own parly friends. The tariir bill that he openly advocated w as slaughtered in the house if his friends, and he wax conijielled to swallow a measure that he had previ ously denounced as jn-rtidious and dis honorable, and now conies the curren cy bill which he jM-rsonaliy ommeud--d, and whii-h was stnmgled in the throes of binh oil Wi-dnes-.lay last. There is no other such record if crush ing defeat and humilitiling disaster to i- found in the history of ail our Presi dents. It was good news that came from Washington a few days since, that Carlisle and Springer ami Speaker Crisp, liack-d with all the power of the Administration, failed to land the w ild rat currency hill, for which they have to xealously lalxire l. Thedii-isivc vote came on the attempt to adopt a rule In end delate- The Republicans stood by (heir guns, and with the assistance of theHilvcritcsaud a few IV-mocrats defeated the attempt o gag them and pass the bill. The vote stood 11 to 1:. Sini- then the 1 ietuK-ra-y have liecn " all at sea," and it is almost assured that there will lie no financial legislation secured dur ing the brief remainder of this session. The Treaimry is leing depleted of its ?ld, the reveuiKs are daily running iH-hind the cxjienscs of tiie govern ment, and the stunlmni iinlnx iles con-' Jrolling Congrtsis continue to wrangle jimoiig themselves and denounce the! R--pubIieans for refusing to aid them irry out their desrructlve schemes. It lia lieen pointed out to them tluit a !uall but gi'ueral iueretLse of the pres- cut duties on all imports and mi ad dltional tax on lvr would f.nft the present wants of the Treasury and t over matters until a well-digested nn ide as- ure of relief can lie agr.vd upon. Rut no ! That would le on acknowlei Igt- mcnt that the new tariti w as not uc" complishing nil its friends promised and the propost-d overthrow of the present National banking system and the restoration of wild-iit banking would have to U ab'andoniil, and s, rather than admit the failure of tl net m-iLsuri-s the business iii(ep-st sof the ciitireoiuittry are alloweil to dr 'ag along with a threatened monetary p: ;in- ie hanging over them. 1 here n :is a more striking illustration of v r the old savins that "RourUms never for; get anything or ham anything.?' What we are to expect from this Congress Iic twecii this and the 4th of March can only lie conjectured, hut the count re call congratulate itscif on the fact that when a re-adjustment f its financial attain? does come it will not lie in the line of an irredeemable and rotten State-bank wild-cat currency. Ia Twelve States. With the lK'gimiir.g of this year the Republican party resumes control over twelve slates whe re for several years it has lieen in the minority. The inaugi'.ra tion of Governor Upham at Madison last week aP.er four years of Iteniocratie rule will lie a day of rejoicing among the Wis consin Republican.. ISut Wisconsin is only one of a doM-n Slates where the Re publicans lake control of the State gov ernments to administer tha anVirs and assume the responsibilities for gxd and eononiii-jil government. These states are Ctlorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Kansas, New York, North Dakota, Ore gon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Ten nessee, Wisconsin and Wyoming. In Delaware, New York and Tennessee the change is from Democratic rule of longstanding, Delaware and Tennessee having been Democratic since the war, and New York Democratic for more than a dozen years. Pennsylvania and Wis consin have had Democratic administra tions for four years, and Rhode Island and Connecticut v ere carried by Demo crats two years ago. In Colorado, Kansas, North Dakota, i treg-m and Wyoming the administration of a'.i'airs is rescued trom the Populists. The wave of Populism which swept over the West four yea rs ago swept Kans:is, t iregon and Colorado from their Republi can moorings, and two years ago tiie Dem-K-rats and Populists combined in North Dakota and Wyoming and elected governors. Rut Governors Waite, Pen noyer and lAWeliing have made Popu lism such a danger to public peace and prosperity that in the election last No vcikUt every Western State that had a Populist administration went over to the Republicans with a clean sweep. The Republicans failed to elect Govern ors in two Western States that gave Re publican majorities on all the r.s.t of the ticket. These were Nebraska and 'nli- fi.rnia. The defeat of Majors in Nebraska was a personal and not a party defeat, for the Republicans elected a majority of the lA'jjislalure and ail the Congressmen, and the Legislature is alxmi to elect a Repub lican, John M. Thurston, to the Cnite.1 States Senate. The defeat of Rsiec in California was another personal defeat. and the Rcpubii.-ans elected all the oti:-r Suite olti-crs and a majority of the Legis lature. Tiie Democrats of Tennessev are in the same iHjsilion as the Republican of Nebraska and California. The" lost the Suite ticket and ch-cted the legisla ture. That Tennessee Lejti-'lature has ho more right to deny the certiiicalu of l-." -tion to ;over!ior-eh-it II. Clay Kvaua than had the Republic:'.!! Iegislalures of Nebraska and California to deny certifi cates of tlecti"ii to tioveruor Jlohvmh aucl (ioxemor I.iihl. Rut the dillereiit maimer of t.-ceptnig the verdict of the people North uu-1 South is illustrated by the ditierent way in which Tennessee Democrats and C;-.!;fi-- niu and Nebraska Ri-publieans tri al the men who rovived the highest vole at th polls. In California and Nebraska R--piihii:-ins assisted at the inauguration of Democratic govvrn.us ln had run ahead of lluir ticket and been clis-led. In Tennessee the De:ii:s-r;;l;e Le'iislat'.iri' is trying to .uoK-l some scheme by which it can prevent a iepuMa-ui governor from taking bis seat as the Kxeculive of the State. This is one of tic reasons why Nebraska and California are more jvojui lar than Tennessee and imuiigratiou has ln-en kept turneil lowanl the Wct, not- wiihstaiiding the etU.i ts of the S.uu!i to tuin the stream in that direction. The home seekers prefer states where their Vot-ss may lie counted as cast, and where the jicoplc once intrusted with power re linquish it when the majority of the votes are givcu to other men.

IX Two masked roblicrs, disguised as farmers, held up a passenger train at Chillieotheon the Rur lingtoii Railroad last night and got away with the contents of the express car safe, proliably or over. The pair of I audits jumped intotheex press car through the open side disir, just aj the train was leaving Chillicothe. The express messenger was knocked down and forced to give up the safe keys. He and the luiggagetuan were cowed by re volvers, hound and gagged. All the packages and valuable. in the safe were thrown into a grain sack. As the train was Hearing this city the mail clerk came into the express car and was covered by revolvers without being bound or gagged. The train slowed up at Milwaukee Junction, a few miles from this city, and this gave the roblicrs an op portunity to jump olT the train and es caK! in the darkness. It is thought the r.iblieis had confederates near here, and that they were taken to a placo of con cealment in a carriage. Tin- mail clerk released the prisoners, ami a soon as the train entered Ottumwa depot the oli-e were notified and a jiosse started in pursuit. Kverything in the sale was talo n, but it is not lielieved the roblicrs got more than $.-,onu cash. Changes in the Senate. WAsiiixomx, Jan. 1:5. Thirty senato rial terms expire with this Congress.

He liualiy broke open the box, and was horrified to find only a couple of cards therein. He is now searching for the rascals. A Blitiird in tlaWest.
