If using, with u «how of economy sod
Hnliwitftl reform, voted to abolish the
drinking Privilege, tho nest act io this
fMfWtrJhsfsl farce of tho greot moral pest*
hows« at Wasliiogton was to vote to in
crease the salaries of the President, other
«fetal* and of the members of both Hou
seo of Congress. Not satisfied with hav
ing thus turned what was of least some
advantage to the public into a source of
ravoaoe for themselves, and a means of
lining their own pockets, they nest, under
the leadership of a mau notorious for the
readiness with which he appropriated, dur
ing his residence ut New Orleans and otb
«•r places iu the S>utb, all that came with
in hit reach to hi* own use. voted to es
send tbe time for which they were to re
ceive additional pay. beyond the dato of
the abolition of the Franking Privilege,
for the loss of which this increase in the
salary of (be M. t'.'i wna to, nominally,
oonfponsote, and over a period when they
wert entitled to and enjoyed the privilege
of a free use nt I lie mails.
Tha alleged reason for the abolition of
it* Pranking Privilege was that it was
greatly abused, and it was argued that its
abolition would be a uicaus of imuicusc
saving to the nation ; but no sooner is the
law paaaed by which this great saving was
tu he «ecotnpIMivd. than we see the same
man wbol woud save the government the
espouse of tree postage, voting to take ;
f uni the National treasury almost two
millions of innn»y to divide among them
selves, and this, too, without a shadow of
right or the least claim to ju»lice, and for
services fur which they had alrsady been
amply compensated.
This is >>of instance of wholesale rebbe

charged upon the Republican party alooc,
for the act hv which it was accomplished
