NKNATUH HANSOM.
The consciousness of the weakness
of the managers of the Radical party
is more and more apparent at every
.step they take to screen themselves
and their party from the damning
effects of the exposures which have
boon made of the immense mass of
corruption which exists in their ranks.
Their attempts to shield their criminals
from the scorn aud just indignation of
an outraged country, but exposes more
prominently to view their infamy and
disgrace. In -the language of John
Randolph they "shine and stink, and
stink and shine, like a rotten mackerel
by moon light." And whilst they feel
themselves sinking in a sea of infamy
of their own creation, they continually
stretch out their hands to drag down
with them to the abodes of difgracc
and punishment the names of some of
the patriots whose love of justice ami
honesty is bringing on the day of retri
bntion. We have scarcely deemed it
worth while to mentio even some of
their calumnious allegations. Espe
cially was this true as to the whisper
ings of malice which endeavored to
breathe suspicion on the fair name of
the distinguished Senator from North
Carolina Senator Ransom. The .ne
gation against this name, and a full
refutation of the allegation, are so well
stated by our esteemed cotemporary
the Norfolk Landmark, for which we
thank that paper in the name of the
people of North Carolina, that we
adopt tha Landmark 's vindication:
The strategy of the Radical to pro
tect themselves against the assaults of
the Democrats is to asail leading men
of our party without regard to truth
or justice, but simply for the purpose
of withdrawing attention from thuir
own leaders now on trial before the
bar of pnblio opinion. To this end
they fight Chinese fashion and manu
facture 4,stink-pots," which they
fling right and left with the
most reckless audacity. Anion p
other distinguished men thus assailed
they have singled out General Ran
som of North Carolina, but a more un
happy selection for their purpose
could not have been made. That
Senator is indeed worthy of the seat he
occupies, and would have adorned it
in the days when Clay, Calhoun and
Webster contended in debate. As s
soldier he was enterprising and valiant;
as a statesman, his Saulsbury speech
shows him to be possessed of broad
and catholic views; and as a gentle
man, he is above reproach. The
charge brought against him is one
which, when investigated, does him
honor. In brief, it seems that as the
successor of Vance, who was struck
down by Radical hatehe o juceived tin
noble idea of conveying to that gentle
man the money to which he was
morally entitled as a Seuator-elec
front Carolina, and after a full debute
among common friends, Vance consent
ed to receive a part of the sum, all of
which Ransom considered him to be
entitled to. It is in vain for partisau
casuists to attempt to make this trans
action anything but an honor to Gen
eral Ransom, and this will be the ver
dict of the people. The assault upou
him, like a rude blow on a shield of
gold, has only served to leave a mark
of brightness on its surface, and to re
real the sterling value of the metal.
For our own part, the transaction has
elevated him still further in our esteem,
and we are proud to call him our compatriot.

' The great leaders of the Republican
x party, having for eight years under
the present Administration glutted
themselves with ill-gotten gain, when
their crimes are exposed to the public
gaze adopt a system of recrimination
and slander which is as harmless to
the Democrats who made theje expos
ures as it is contemptible in the minds
of all honest men. The New York
World thus states the crime of
Clyieeb :
"There are two evils, not set down
in the Litany, against which, as times
go, it will be necessary to pray for de
liverance namely, honesty and the
discovery of the foibles of great peo
ple. The ingenious Gil Bias lost one
of the best places he ever had by find
ing out that the Archbishop of Toledo
had softening of the brain, and telling
His Grace of the fact; and he was
turned out of a still better situation
because he happened to discover that
his mistress' favorite duenna was
afflicted with a disagreeable disease.
It becomes every prudent man, there
fore, before exposing the villainies of
a great person, to consider whether
he, the reformer, is the stuff of which
martyrs are made, or whether he is
strong enough to withstand the trans
gressor and his friends. Not every
reformer oan hope to rival the re
peated viotories of a Tilden. Few
men carry so many guns, fewer have
such sagacity, and fewer still possess
their souls in such an interminable pa
tienoe and such an indifference
to personal consequedces, good or
ill. And we know of no one
who was ever so impartial in bis
attentions to the great rasoals of boch
parties. the Tweeds and the Lords,
the Reldons and theThayers, the Hop
kins ana tne Cfaies. J.ms lesson of a
shrewd prudence, it would appear.
cannot be inculcated too often, nor
illustrated too variously for the instruc
tion of our public men. Look at old
Luke Poland, who distinguished him
self so gallantly in the investigation of
the Credit Mobilier frauds. He is al
lowed to rust in idleness in the shadow
of the Green Mountain because he had
a hand in running so many Christian
statesmen. To be sure he was paaistd
by everybody, but'he was not re-elected.
Then there was that champion
political thief -catcher, Jerry Wilson, of
ndiana, who was so active in turning
out to the light of public opinion the
secrets of the Pacific Railroad and the
District of Columbia consider his
fate and be wise. The atmosphere of
Washington was made so un comfort
able for him that he retired from pub
lie life and was glad to hold his
tongue in the obscurest reigons of
Hoosierism. Everybody in the country
knows that the city of New York has
been for years the prey of a canal
ring, and that the doings of the clique
were thoroughly exposed last sum
xner; but a great number of respect
able Republicans, especially those with
cheese-press and hay-mow proclivities,
regard Bigelow, Fairchild and Magone
with bitter suspicion, as somewhat re
sponsible for the knavery which they
only uncovered, and look upon Davis,
Thayer and Hopkins as the victims of
a political conspiracy. The recent I
startling exposure of official corruption I of
at Wat-hington has been followed by
the same curious retribution visited
upon the heads of the detectors of the
crime. It was not possible for the
Republican press to defend Belknap,
but the party leaders determined to
make all who were in any way agents
in bringing home the proof of his guilt,
suffer for what they had done. They
denounced the witness Marsh as the
meanest of human beings, a coward,
a thief and the betrayor of his friend,
and they breathed the direst ven
geance again.it him. So fiercely did
they rago that he, who might have
run away before testifying, was -too
sr?ghtened to stay in the coun
try after he had told his story.
His wife was suspected of prompting
him to turn informer, and she was
taught th:; danger of going forth to the
help of the Lord against the mighty,
by having her character blackened.
For her share in the business, what
ever it was, she was branded as an ac
complice in bribery, and an adulteress.
Should she take any more active part
in proviiig Belkrup's infamy, she will
probably be accused of strangling
children for chickeu-broth and making
a tour of Europe on a broom-3tick to
spend a n igbt with the Devil qn the
Brocken. As for Congressman" Rob
bins, Li- part in bringing a Cabinet
officer to justice has been avenged by
raking up an old story against him
concerning a twenty-dollar fee; and a3
a warning to all his associates to avoid
making uasavory discoveries crimi
nating the' Administration, he is held
up to ridicule by a nickname in all the
Republican papers. If he had been
less vulnerable, his assailants would
have been compelled to invent a lie
against him, and they would have
made it one warrant to kill at
forty paces. Blackburn, who refused
to melt at Mrs. Belknap's sup
plications, is held up to the abhorrence
of all good citizens, in the person of
his brother, who was accused of
spreading smalll-pox and yellow feyer
in the Northern cities by means of in
fected clothing. By skilfully managing
this matter. Administration journals
contrive to mix up the brothers in an
editorial so that their readers come
out at the close of it with the Couvic
tion that it was Congressman Black
burn, tho denouncer of Belknap, who
set on foot the diabolical scheme for.
depopulating the North by epidemics
and ruining it by fire. But Heister
Clymer, chairman of the committee
that exposed the Secretary of War, has
suffered most of all at the hands of the
loyal newspapers. It is said on high
authority that the way of the
transgressor is hard, but Belknap's
course for the past week has been
oyer roses and moss, while Clymer 's
has been strewn with thorns. He ban
been accused of collusion with Marsh,
adultery with Marsh's wife, connivance
with Pendleton, political dishonesty
anl general imbecility, all because he
did his simple duty and proved that
one of the highest officers of the Gov
eminent was a scoundrel. A stranger
arriving in the country would imagine
from the press that Clymer, instead of
proving himself the vigilant hero of v
viriuous action, naa Deen detected in
some 6hanieful crime. In the smudge
of indignation that has been set
a-smoking by the Republican press
against Clymer, the contemptible vil
lain whom he caught slips by unob
served. In the fierce, unreasoning
wrath of the Republican party on this
calamity there is something of the mad
passion of Othello:
I swear 'tis better to be much abused,
Than but to know't a little.
What sense had I in her stolen hours
of lust?
I saw't not, thought it not, it harmed
not me.
I slept next night well, fed well, was
free and merry;
I found not Cassio's kisses on her lips;
He that is robbed, not wanting what is
stolen,
Let him not know't, and he's not rob
bed at all.'
"And this indignant Republican
party whose jsalousy, unlike that of
the Moor, is well founded, turns fiercely
upon the innocent Clymer and calls for
evidence:
"Villain, be sure thou piove my love a
whore;
Be euro of it; give me the ocular proof,
Or by the truth of mine eternal soul,
Thou had'st better been born a doer
Thau answer mv waked wrath.' "
A CHINESE SCRinJIAOE.
The Heathen Chinee in San Fran
cisco is a savage animal when he gets
his dander up, as was shown by the
recent attack of a number of them
upon their employers. The firm of
Yee Chy Lung & Co. is composed of
Ah Sam. Ah Sue.Ah Jim and Ah Phat.
They are wealthy and hold extensive
contracts frr furnishing Chinese lab o
to a number of city manufactories. It

amouut of money as guarantee, which
they in turn have required of th
laborers. Thus each of the men de
posited with the firm amounts varying
from $2o to $100, according ' to the
amount of work they contracted for,
Some time ago a number of the work
men struck, and attempted to force
Ah Sam and his associates to with
draw all of their workmen from the
factories and also to return their gua
rantee money. This was declined, and
the result was that while the members
of the firm were quietly talkincr over
matters m their store they were
charged upon by a force of infuriated
Chinamen. They immediately seized
all the weapons that lav at
hand, including meat axes, iron
bars, hatchets and revolvers, and made
a determined opposition to the in
vaders. A miscellaneous fight follow
ed, and pandemonium raged for a time.
fixtures were smashed, windows
broken and blows and blood rained in
torrent The streets on the outside
became quickly crowded with an ex
cited and yelling mob. Officers, jgreatly
attracted by the excitement, broke
their way through the crowd into the

at rested. An express wagon was called,
and the maimed and bleeding China
men were carried to the prison hospi tal
to be oared for. One man had his
chest and abdomen cut onnn whilA
another lo3t one of his legs. The
wounds included cuts upon the arms
and hands, club blows upon the head,
hatchet gashes in the chest, sides, ab-
oomeu, and upon the neck, while two
tho assailants were killed outright.
ALL ALIKE.
Wherever, say 6 the Haitfoid Times.
the probe is thrust in the executive de
partments at Washington, tharo i
found official corruption. Even th
Pension Ouloe is about as bad as th.
rest. - Mr. luga'.ls, from Kiu.-a ,
charged openly in the Senate, a ft-v
weeks ago, that at Jeast five million
of dollars is fraudulently paid out
every year orr account of pensious.
His estimate proves to ba belw the
reality. This service disbursed last
year $30,248,660. Of this enormou
sum 20,289,519 was paid at the annual
rate to pensioners, and $2,885,189 was
claimed to be paid for arrears on pen
sions, ofwbich no separate account is
kept. The office expenses and dis
bursing agencies consume $1,071,778.
It thus appoars that four per cent, on
the total amount paid to annual pen
sioners is appropriated for the official
machinery to get the money into their
hand. The Pensioa Office, like al
other branches of the puthc service,
is corrupt, int-fficieut, and directed by
favoritism. The widows and orphans
of soldiers are systematically robbed
There is utter looseness, corruption
and absence ofncconntabil'ty.

Now it is said that King Alfonso has
sheathed his sword, and, with his
troops, who drove the Carlists from
Spain, has made his entrance into
Madrid. The city was decorated with
flags and banners, and shouts of wel
come flonted in the air. The youDg
King was hailed ns "pacificator" of his
country and the soldiers were crowned
with flower''. It was a holiday in
which the people joined as they would
have visited a bull fight or any other
public demonstration. Many of the
same men and women shouted when
Queen Isabella was driven from the
city in 1868, when Frince Amadeus
assumed the reins of supreme au
thority, when the Repuolic was de
clared and when the Bourbons were re
instated in power by the action of the
army under some of its prominent
leaders. Shouts are cheap, and usu
ally directed toward the rising sun.
But what will the people of Spain gain
by the termination of the war, the ex
ile of Don Carlos and a full-fledged
Bourbon administration ? Some of
them have shed their blood to bring
about this consummation; others have
given their money; and now thechange
has been accomplished, what next?
Spain wants a liberal, progressive gov
ernment to put life and animation iu
its people and stimulate and develop
all its resources. Railroads and tele
graphs are needed. Commerce de
mauds encouragement, and agriculture
is suffering from bad laws, executed by
dishonest men. Taxes are crushing
the industries of the couutry, and
whilst most of the nations of Europe
are advancing in trade, commerce and
general prosperity, Spain has been so
crippled by wars, convulsions and the
machinations of Hellish men as to oc
enpy a tot. illy diff rent position. And
to make matters worse the Bourbons
are now in power. A weak Kin?, a
corrupt ex Queen and bigoted Miuis
ters will have the management of
affairs. They will make the laws
Elections will be a farce. The Cortes
will run in the channel pointed out by
the Cabinet. Thus will Spain be cursed
with fresh injuries, and in a short time
the throng that shouted when King
Alfonso entered Madrid will be ready
to cast their caps into the air if he
should be treated as was his royal
mother. Bjiirbon rule has been tran
sient withiu the last half century in

We learn from a private letter from
Washington that Colonel Waddell has
beeu very active ia opposition to the
bill now pending in Congress to change
the law in regard to compulsory pilot
age. The committee to whom the bill
was referred had agreed t make a re
port recommending its adoption, that
is.recomrneuding the repeal of the law
compelling vessels to tak pilots. Col
onel vVaddell appeart d before the com
mittee aud ppoke against the passage
of the bill; the last time he was 'ac
companied by Mr. Goode, of Norfolk,
Virg'nia, aud by M. Hartridge, of
Savannah, Georgia. The result was
that the committee agreed to recon
sider its determination to report favor -ul
ly on the bill. Captain Ten Broeck,
of Savannah, who represented onr
pilots in Washington this year as he
iiad done last year, was telegraphed for
by Mr. Hartridge at the suggestion of
Colonel Waddell.
The? facts have come to our kno"vl
edqe nncl and we feel bound in dutv to
a faithful representative to lav them
before our readers. It is true that the
pilotage laws offset only a compare
tively smail number of C )lonel Wad

him none the less vigilant, none tbf

COnPAIIISOil AND ITS JIOKAL.
A reeent paragraph in an exchange
furnishes ns u text on which we pro
pose to submit a few broken remarks
this morning. The paragraph to which
we refer is this, "the wife of Ger.
lckson's Secretary tf War. generally
received company in a calico dress
without any trimmings."
It would be an interesting occupa
tion, though perhaps a painf nl one, to
note the wonderful changes which
have taken place in this country in
what is generally known as society
within the last half century.
It is a little over forty years since
Gen. Jackson was President, and
within that oomp ratively brief space
of time what a marvelous upheaving
there has been in social circles as well
as circles political. Th.n, a dignified
simplicity was the rule, and not as
now, the exception. The tinsel glare
and show of a shoddy aristocracy was
eutire'y unknown, character gave tone
to society, and merit honor and modesty
were recognized and appreciated. No
dashing equipages with liveried .ser
vants rolled through the broad avenues
of the capital, for such things were
then regarded as repugnant to repub
lican institutions; access to heads of
departments and to the President
were easibly obtainable, for the
"divinity that doth hedge a king"
would not in those days have been
tolerated nor perhaps submitted to.
At balls and levees the style of dress
of the leaders of the ton, as it is now
styled, was plain yet tasteful, and not
made as in the present time to expose
charms which should be carefully con
cealed from the vulgar gaze. Times
certainly have changed since then, and
people too, and that the change has
been for the worse there caa be, we
think, no shadow of a doubt.
To illustrate: Let us take the case of
the wife of Gen. Jackson's Seoreta y
of War and of If resident Grant's. The
one received company in a calico dress
without trimmings, the other in costly
robes of finest texture and foreign
manufacture. No sparkling ornaments
adorned the one, while priceless jewels
glittered on the bosom of the other,
rivalling in beauty the voluptuous de
velopment upon which they reposed.
The one could not legitimate' y afford
"trimmings ' or perhaps thought them
in Lad taste; the other could aud did,
but at the sacrifice of her husband's
honor and her own reputation, but let
us add, the man himself was by far the
more guilty of the two.
When we reflect upon this festering
mass of moral putrefaction that has
been developed in the high places of
the land, and the character and position
of the parties implicated, what a
terrible condition of morals is ex
hibited to the world in this centennial
year of the republic. Men of national
r -putatfon in the councils of the conn
try, hitherto nnim peached and con
sidered unimpeachable, have been
found unable to withstand temptation
and like Esau of old have readily
bartered away all that made life de
sirable for sordid gold gold, to en
able them to outshine F,ome rival
establishment, to gratify fancies and
indulge extravagances no matter how
sinful, so they be but fashionable.
Extravagance seems to be the sin
Of the present age "that doth most
easily beset us." The greater our de
sires the more we demand, and if we
cannot honestly obtain what we think
we need, or what the demands of a
false tone of society requires of us, we
are very apt at such times and in
such a condition to "put money in our
purse" without stopping to scrutinize
too keenly the in tuuer in which we
obtain it. Conscience in these pro
gressive Jays is as elastn as gutta
percha, perhaps a little more so, and
happy is that man whose wants ate
limited, for the less we desire the
nearer wei are to God.
The moit painful feature in this
wi etched condition of affairs is that it
is not confined to one cla s of men, but
seems to have permeated the entire
body politic. The halls of Congress,
the bench, the bar md the pulpit have
all their representatives, and what
makes the matter still worse is the
fact that the prii ripal offenders against
law, decency aud morality are men
not only of exalted position, socially
and politically, but shining lights in
many of our churches. Look for ex
ample at ttn lecherom aud perjured
pastor of Plymouth Church, the liev.
Winslow, swindler and forger, the
many, many other reverend gentlemen
(heaven save themark),hurlirjganathe-
mas from their pulpits against the
sinful practices of the age, while they
themselves were rioting in exoess,
preaching of ppiritual things and in
dulging in carnal appetites and pas
sions, "using the livery of heaven to
screen the devil."
It really does seem as though we
Were driviug.with railroad speed to
wards a certain place, not mentionab'e
to ears polite. Admit that we know
more than our fathers, that this is the
age of progress, of science, of the
highest development of man's reason,
that we have greater facilities for the
acquisition of knowledge than they,
and greater advatages too for success
in the various pursuits of life.yet with
all these in our favor.- it is painfully
apparent that we are sadly deficient in
that lofty principle.aud stern integrity
which with them wh above all price.
and for which they were so distin
guished. While we plume ourselves upon our
attainments and advanced civilization
we have ignored, we fear, the stern
virtues of the past, and thus it seems
to us is that dead fly in our ointment
which destroys its perfume. The less
boasting therefore we indulge in as a
people, the better it will be for ua.
Let us firstfoot out the festering mass
of corruption which taints the atmos
phere arouad us before like the Phari
see, we give thanks to God that we are
not like other people. Perhaps if we
were like some others, it would be
more to our credit; there is certainly
ample room for improvement.
Mr. Blaine got in a little buncombe
a day or two ago on a bill reported
from the judiciary committee to pre
vent the solicitation of contributions
ior eiecwon purposes irom persons in
the employ of the government. He
offered an amendment including Sena-
r , A m
ators and Members of Congress in the
provisions of tho bill. As to himself,
he declared that ke had never contrib
uted a postage stamp for any improper
purposes. Veiy likely. They are not

GOOD FOK VE1TES X
Mr. Yeates, our R- present.itivo iu
Congress from the First District, . i
serving his first t rm in Washington,
but foii all that he has found opportu
nity to pnt in some welldin c i d b'ows.
On Thursday last the House being
in cor- mittee of the wLole on the Lg
iative appropriation bill, Mr. Yeats
said :
The members on the Democratic
Hide, had b. eu intimidated and threat
ened by the other side. They had
seen the leaders coming down the
aisles with clenched fi-t, denouncing
them as rebels, and the gentleman
from Massachusetts (Mr. Hoar) had
taken occasion to read them a lecture,
tlis people were a liberty loving peo
plo, and would not submit to ncb
raunts and jeers. Disloyalty to the
llepubl can party has been denounced
as Jisloyalty to the country. The cry
from the other side abou rebels was
merely political He proposed to show
the kiud of allies the distinguished
gentleman from Maine bad in the
.South. Gov. Holden was oue of them.
Gen. Longstreet was another. The
ttepublicau party had attempted to
buy up men of the South, and those
they could not buy up they denounced
as rebels.
The gentleman from Maine and the
gentleman from Massachusetts thought
m re to d .y of Gen. Longstreet and
Bib Holden than they did of Gen,
Banting and Get. Rice, and other
Democratic officers around liim who
had fought under the stars and stripes.
He arraigned the Republican party
for demoralizing the peop'e, destroy
ing the purity of the ballot, and pros
tituting' the ballot-box before the mili
tary. He charged th:tt the Republican
party only gave the vote to the oolored
people when they found that they
could not secure the votes xt the
Southern whites, and then created ten
thousaud offices, and sent down ten
thousand carpet-baggers to prejudice
the neeroes aiainst the whites and to
act as spies upon them. But he would
tell them they could not hold the col
ored men forever, and at the next elec
tion they would vote as they pleased.
The Republicans had not only cor
rupted the colored but the white peo.
pie at the South, and they had been
robbed. There had been a constant
stream of money pouring from the
South into Washington. He would not
undertake to say how it was divided or
where it went. He had always be
lieved that Abraham Lincoln was a
godd man, and had he lived there
would have been a far different state
of affiirs in the South. He charged
that five years of profound peace un
der the Grant administration had
spent more money than had ben spent
from the inauguration of Georg-
Washington to the time Belk
nao weut out of office. What had be-
o ime of the money ?
Mr. Townsend, of N. Y. We paid
the interest on the rebel debt.
Mr. Yeates referred to the investi
gation going on and said that Side in
tended to fight it out on that line if it
took all summer. He next referred to
the corruption at e'ections and Re
cused the Republican officials of inter
ference and tho use of their power and
patronage to coerce and intimid ite th.
voters aud levying taxes upon the wo
men and girls in the Departments in
Washington to carry out their plans.
They h-id told the oolored voters that
if the Democrats were elected they
would send them back to slavery, aud
he had been told by colored men in
his district that if he was elected and
did noi send them back to slavery
they would vote for him the next time
aud from then out. The hope of the
South was in theDemocratic people of
the North. They weie the only
ones who had ever held out the
hand of friendship to them. The
Republican partv had tried to
make the South hate them. He wou'd
tell them they did not like the Repnb
l.can party haif as well as tuey el d the
country. When he saw Grautism he
Maw somethiug to fear more than se
cession. There was not a Republican
in the South that was not ready to put
the crown on him like Mark Anthony
tried to put iton Oe-ar.and a portion of
the people of Massachusetts were
ready to help do the act. He said
there had been a little skirmish np in
New Hampshire, aud the Democratic
pickets had been driven in, but they
would raUy from Maine to Georgia, and
march boldly up until they planted

Halleck, the man whosiole, or rather
helped to steal, a package of $17,000
from the United States Treasury, has
beeu tried and convicted. Halleck had
h confederate, but was not one of the
ring. Had he belonged to the Dist ict
ring, or the whisky ring, or the trading
post ring, he would no more have been
convicted thau was Bibcock, although
the evidence against him had been as
conclusive as that against the ex
private secretary. It all depends upon
a government thief's affiliations,
whether, beitg tr,ied for his offenses,
he will be acquitted or convicted.
Tlic Conviction of Juiljre 3tose.
Judge Montgomery Moses has been
convicted by the Senate of demanding
fees from litigants aLd from public
officials, of appropriating to his own
use public moneys, of neglect of duty,
of refusing to grant orders to. which
all p.irties interested consented, and of
corrupt partiality in ordering the pay
ment of public fuuds to certain ere li
tors to the exclusion of others. Iu ac
cordance with this verdict the presi
dent of the Seriate has pronounced the
sentence of removal from office, and
Judge Moses ceases heucrfor;h to ex
ercise his judicial functions, being also
debarred from ever holding any public
ffioe in this State. This verdict causes
no surprise, for the na'ure of the evi
dence long since removed all doubt of
the guilt of the accused. The action
of his counsel in retiring from the caa
was very ingenious, but at the same
time transparent, as th charges of un
fairness preferred by them afforded a
nice pretext for abandoning the for
tunes of a client whose case was hope
less.
The impeachment of Judge Moses is
i matter of slight importance, except
rs a rebuke to official corruption. Ess
teim lias nearly expired by limitation,
and he would have had but littfe
further opportunity of protituiug
this position. Its chief siguifieaue is
a warning to ohtr j ides, more
active and dangerous th-m Moses, that
they too may be brought to account
for morj daringand audacious breaches
of official duty, unless we are to be
lieve that this impeachment is but
another instance of the eagerness often
manifested by R dica's to plunge their
weapons into putrid corps -s, while
studiously refraining from uttackiug
vigorous antagonists. Evry tim
however that a corrupt official is weed
ed out there is cause for congratu
lation. Judge Moses is well out of
the way. Sooner or later the investi
gation and impeachment of others
will follow. Charleston Newt and

A Carious Ciift.
S. Jeff. Jennings, the well known
cotton factor, desired to present Mr.
Dempste, a friend in Liverpool, Eng
land, with a fresh specimen of onr
Savarnah shad; so Mr. Jennings hit
on a novel plan to carry oat his wish.
He went to Hale Bam tt, the president
or tne Augusta xoe- tJompany, who
carried ont Mr. Je nings's desire by
enclosing two splendid specimens cf
shad in the centre of a block of ice one
hundred and sixty-five pounds in
weight. No doubt the fish found
frozen in tne bluck of ice will prove as
great a curiosity in Liverpool as were
the apple dumplings to King George.

If rumor is to be trusted, the affair
with Mr. Marsh is only one of a series;
evidence as to other irregularities will
be forthcoming, and possibly the War
Seer, tary may not be the only person
involved.
This eveut is the more grave because
it is confirmatory of suspicions which
have long prevailed among the Ameri
can public. Th reputation of the
official world has of late years not been
so high as is desirable in a model Re
public. Even we Europeans cannot
but be struck with the altered tone in
which Americans speak, if not of their
institutions, at least of the men who
have the present direction of them.
We had long been accustomed to hear
of municipal corruption, and even of
the power of the purse in certain of
the State Legislatures; but now it has
been intimated that in higher regions
the irregulurities have been serious.
President Grant has been surrounded
by men of Buspected reputation, who
might at any time bring disgrace upon
him and upon the country. When he
was elected in 1868 he hid the fairest
opportunities. He was a successful
General. He ha 1 brought to an end
the greatest war in which the country
had been engaged. He was the chief
of the Republican party, which then
had an overwhelming majority in both
Houses of Congress. He had a defi
nite work to do the pacification and
reconstruction of the South, and he
oould count oa Ihe support of the
American people until it was accom
plished. But his position at the pres
ent time, when his official career is
coming to a close, does not correspond
with the advantages he possessed at
the commencement. People have lately
become impatient at the stories which
are whispered abont, and anxious to
make a clearance of an objectionable
set, who, if not themselves official,
approach too near and were in too
close a connection with the holders of
office. The recent trial of Gen. Bab
cock for his alleged connection with
the whisky ring was followed with
intense interest by the public, and
although Gen. Babcock has been
acquitted, the revelation how things
ire managed iu this Centennial year
of the Republic is far from reassuring.
Tn the present case it is a Minister of
the highest rank who is accused, and,
moreover, one whose profession and
particular ofiioe should dissociate him
from illicit guilt.
Subterranean Streams.
From the Macon Telegraph and Messenger.
There can be no reasonable doubt
that rtouthern Geergia aud Florida rest
upon a substratum of marine lime
stone, which is permeated by subter
ranean streams, often intersecting and
oommumoitiug with each other.
This is shown in the grea.t number
of so-called "lime sinks," which form
suddenly evideutly by a break in the
limestone Crust, and remain years filled
with pure and limpid water, which
never stagnates, though without visible
connection with any current. These
E.inks vary greatly at different times in
their depth of water sometimes they
are almost empty, and again full to
the surface of the earth without the
smallest visible affluent.!
One of them sunk immediatelyunder
a six-mule wagou team driven by an
old Atrican acquaintance of ours, who
escaped with his charge by a violent
exercise of the whip, and left behind
him a sink which in a few minutes con
tamed a depth of water he could not
fathom with all his leading lines.
We have known wells to be sunk
bath iu Southern Georgia and Florida,
in which, after drilling at this lime
stone crust with a crowbar, the bot
tom would sudiianly give wiy, the
crowbar disappear and the water rush
up in such a volume that the well
would nearly fill iu a few seconds, while
the noise of a rushing current below
was distinctly heard.
The same phenomena the Times
6peaks of tho disappearance and re
filling of lakes, has repeatedly occurred
in Middle Florid on a much larger
scale. Lake Jackson, near Tallahas
see, has disappeared aud reappeared
twice within our recollection, and
neighboring lakes have varied greatly
in their volume of water independently
of ail surface contributions.
It is well known that one, and we
think two rivers in Florida discharge
into the Gulf by subterranean chan
nels, miles beyond the coast liue, while
one of them disappears and reappears
before reaching the coast, until it
siuks nually to debouch by a subter
ranean outlet into the Gulf of Mexico.
The great Silver Springs of the Ockla
wa.li a and Wakulla are nothing but the
udden upburst of subterranean r.vers;
aud finally we can account for the fact
that no staguant water is visible in the
thousands of little pools and ponds
and lakes in that country, which are
without visible inlet or outlet, only on
the theory that they all find change
aud circulation by subterranean chan
nels.

The N. Y. Si still hammers
on Beecher, without mercy:
away
Mr. Beecher is a cool customer.
rr - - ... i i -
xnis is suown Dy nis preaching on as
if he was auuointed s lint, instead of a
conspicuous example of ministerial de
gradation. Ou Sunday he rose to the
summit of coolness. Exp'oitm ? the
gospel of gush, that is, his own preach
ing, he ended by pointing out his
peculiar church a3 a brilliant example
ot what no called "the preaching of
the doctrine of love." We should eay
it was, provided by love he means free
love aud the celebration of the practice
of that in its pastor. If the brethren
exemplify the workings of love we ad
vise preachers generally to inculcate
on their flocks some other doctrine.
As lor Mr. Beecher, he seemi to have
a stock of love on hand large enough
to supply the biggest church. His
" heart bounds toward all;" but if it
shall continue to bound in the way it
has done, we advise husbands and
fathers to take their wives and daugh
ters to some place where it can't bound
toward them. Beecher has too elastic
a heart, and it bouuJs too miscellane
ously.
