MONPi T, SEPTEMBER 18,1871.
Mr. F. R. Ei.mslib has parted with
his interest in the Morgantown Consti ?
tution to Mr. J. R. Doxehoo, formerly
of the Indiana, Pa., Democrat. We are
fcorry to part with Mr. Elmslib, who
has made a very excellent and influen
tial newspaper, bnt we are glad that, if he
is determined to retire from the business
he has induced so able and experienced
a Democratic editor as Mr. Doxbhoo to
take his place. The Constitution under
its new management, as under the old,
has our wannest wishes for its success.
Tub Republicans talk a great dea'
about the city of New York; but they
keep very quiet about Philadelphia,
whose Radical ring has increased its
debt, during the past three years, twenty
million* of dollars. The Ledger, of that
c'*7> S'? a specimen of the ring's man
agement. A few weeks ago, an ordin
ance was introduced in the city council
appropriating $20,000,000 to be dis
bursed by the water board without
specification of a single item for which
the money was asked, and in face of the
fact that responsible parties avowed
their readiness to undertake the work
said to be contemplated for $-300,000 less
money. Tuesday this ordinance was
passed by " a strict party vote."' One
member of the council remarked that
" his party would be benefitted by the
? passage of the bill." The members o
the Philadelphia ring being Republi
cans, the papers of that perfusion will
find it convenient to say nothing about
it; but such operations are of too com-f
mon occurrence in the Republican party
to permit of their being hushed up by
the persistent silence of one section of
the press.
Professor Pendleton having de
clined to be considered a .candidate for
theConstitutional Convention in Brooke
county, his many friends have suggest
ed Colonel Alexander Campbell, of
Bethany, for that position. Mr. Camp
bell will be a very useful member of
the Convention and his popularity in
Brooke county will iusure his election
by a larger majority than usual.
Hon. Lewis Applegate is talked of
as a Senatorial candidate for the Con- '
vention in this district and Mr. James
Gibson, of Hancock county, is suggest- j
ed as a Democratic candidate for the
the State Senate.
In Broeke county our young friends
Eugene Takr and C. B. Turner are J
announced for the House of Delegates,
subject to the decision of the Demo,
cratic County Convention which is to
be held on Saturday, September 30.
In Hancock county, the Republicans
talk of nominating Hon. Daniel Dun
euoo for the Convention, and Cit.vuLE3
A. Fbekmax for the Legislature. Hon.
Joseph W. Allison* is also announced
as a candidate for nomination. The
Republican County Convention is to le
held on the 9th of October.
KOIIK1NU THE TBIMSI KV.
The recent defalcation of Major
Hodge, a Paymaster in tlie array and
"truly loyal" in tlie fullest modern ac
ceptation ol tlie term, has an import
ance far beyoDd that pertaining to the
sum of money actually stolen by him
from the public treasury. The amount
of the defalcation already ascertained
is said to be $473,939, a sum much
larger than the entire'annual expenses
of the State government of Wtst Vir
ginia, and there is a probability that the
total deficit may exceed one million
dollars. Cut the revelation of the in
terior workings of the Treasury De
partment that has been afforded by
Hodge's defalcation is most important
and most alarming. The country can
perhaps endure the loss of a million
dollars as it has that of many millions
that have gone that way before, but
this defalcation shows that there is no
adequate check upon the accounts of
any of the disbursing officers of tlie
Government and no means of ascer
taining how often or how much they
steal. Everything depends upon the
frail honesty of the officer and it is
only when he is driven to confession as
Major Hodck has been that the people
of the country know they have been
robbed.
When these astounding facts are
calmly considered, says the Washing
ton Patriot, is it surprising that confi
dence should be shaken in a system of
accountability under which such frauds
are possible? What security can exist
when money may be thus drawn from the
public Treasury without detection ? No
man can venture to say how far this
system has been extended, whether it is
the result of collusion or looseness, or
assume that tene of millions have not
been stolen. The belief is justified by
this experience, and by equally glaring
proofs of corruption, that others have
profited by the same opportunity, and
plundered the Treasury to a still great
er extent,
Within the last few weeks the Comp
troller of the Treasury has admitted
over his official signature, that a mil.
lion of notes had been issued by the
Treasurer of the United States without
"any record of their denomination or
numbers." Who can tell how many
more millions have been put in circula
tion without record ? The statements of
the public debt, made by the Secretary of
the Treasury and the Treasurer, exhibit a
discrepanq/ of one hundred and ten mil
lions of dollars. And it is notorious in
Washington city that the books of the
Register and the Secretary cannot be
balanced by many millions. All at
tempt* to reconcile these differences have
utterly failed, and the Treasury state
ments are forced, false, and arbitrary.
We repeat, that investigation is de
manded for the protection of the holders
of public securities, and to check the
organized robbery, by which rings of
plundering officials and Radical parti
sans are daily enriching themselves, at
the expense of an outraged and over
taxed people. Heretofore, Congress baa
obstinately refused to permit any form
of inquiry, or any fair examination of
the books of the Treasury by competent
experts. If, after these alarming dis
closures, a partisan majority should
continue to close the doors against
proper scrutiny, there can be but one
conclusion in the public mind.
Thirty-three electoral votes will
i probably decide the next Presidential
contest, and whether New ork s thirty
three votes shall be cast for the Repub
lican or for the Democratic candidate,
will depend, as we believe, on whether
the power of the Tammany ring tfan be
broken before 1872.? lntclligcnccr, Sat
urday.
In the extract given above the Intelli
gence frankly admits what we have
heretofore claimed, that all the present
outcry about "Tammany frauds is
purely for political effect. The corrup
tion of the Federal administration and
the stealings of Grant's office-holders
have grown to such an alarming degree
that the safety of the Radical party de
pends upon the success of an attempt to
divert the public attention from the
shameful record. With pockets and
hands full of plunder wrongfully ab
stracted from the public Treasury, they
assume the virtue they do not possess
and make the country ring with their
denunciation of the crimes of a few in
dividuals in New York. All the steal,
ings of the "Tammany ring' in New
York city, monstrous and outrageous
as they are, are but a trifle to the
great sums which Radical officials have
stolen from the people of the United
States. Look at the way they have piled
up the debt of the Southern States.
There is scarcely one of those States,
even the smallest and weakest, in which
Radical officials have not stolen as
much as Tweed, Connolly and Company
have taken in the city of New "^ork
Leaving out of the question the stu
pendous frauds that have been perpe
trated upon the United Slates govern
ment by dishonest office-holders, the
fraudulent debt that has beeu saddled
upon the Southern States far o'ertops
all the peculations that can be laid at
the door of the Tammany Society.
We are willing to admit that two
wrongs do not make one right, but
when Radical journals from a confess
edly partisan motive, as in this case,
attempt to excite public opinion against
the Democratic party by reason of
the delinquencies of the citv officers of
New York, they must expect to be met
by the admonition "Physician, heal
thyself." "Let him that is without sin
among you cast the first stone.
Judge .Helvlii.
Judge Thayer Mel vin, of Wheeling,
who is now holding court in the place
ot Judge Hall, ha? very pleasantly im
pressed both our har and community.
To the dignity of the judge he joins the
courtesy of the gentleman ? a union in
which both qualities show to the best
possible advantage ? and manifests a
facility and promptness in discharging
the duties of his office that great lv ex
pedite business, and add to the satisfac
tion of all concerned in the administra
tion of the law. ? Charlestoicn Free Press.
So Longer Sensational.
The Washington Territory swindle,
the Paymaster Hodge swindle, the Nor
ton swindle in the New York city post*
ofticp, reaching into tens of thousands
and millions, do not seem to create a
ripple on the surface of American soci
ety. Under the Radical Administration
public robbery has grown so frequent
that the people have become so used to
it as hardly to be excited any moreover
such performunces. It is only when
the rare thing of a Democrat, so far
forgetting his principles and party obli
gations as to swiudle the public, turns
up that any excitement can be counted
on over a public robbery. According
to rhe hard cider song of 1840,
"Things ain't now
As they used to was."
EQUALITY.
A White Girl Elopes With n Col
ored .Hau.
There is no accounting for tastes, is
an adage and well verified in an in
stance that occurred near the town of
Wintersville, this county, a few days
since. A young lady of prepossessing
appearance, the daughter of a land
owner in that neighborhood, became
enamored with a colored man that
worked near her father's place. Like
Desdemona, she swore she would have
him and clung to him as affectionately
as did the weak Dessie to the swarthy
Othello. This singular fancy of the
young women culminated in an elope
ment with the colored man. So indig
nant were her friends that no pursuit
or effort was made to bring the erring
one back. ? Stcubenville Herald.
The West Virginia State Joiuiial,
published at Parkersburg, is under the
control of ex-Governor Win. E. Steven
son, a man who has as much real sym
pathy with the people over there as a
Samoide can be expected to feel. This
fellow is haunted with an uncomfort
able sense of the fact that, whether a
new constitution be adopted or not, he
and his associates are doomed men.
For the bastard "radical" faction in
West Virginia there is no future; for
such as Stevenson, no hope. ? Marietta
Times. _
We are informed that Col. Benjamin
Wilson, of Harrison, will probably be
nominated as one of the Democratic
candidates for the Convention from the
Fourth Senatorial District. The Colo
nel would make an excellent candidate
and a good member ot the Convention.
His experience in a former similar body
will be of no little benefit to the Con
vention which is to assemble in Charles
ton in next January. We hope that
the Colonel will consent to have his
name used and that the people of that
district may have the benefit of his val
uable services and experience. ? Par
kersburg Gazette.
Beport of Pan Handle Hallway.
The Pan Handle Railway,' from Pitta
burg to Cincinnati, and from Columbus
to Chicago, with branches, hai made a
report. , . . ,
Cost of the road and equipment of
main line, $17,665,633. Earning?
passengere, $2,553,553; freight, $5, <31,
660; mail, $146,917 ; exprees, *204,685 ;
from rent and other sources, the total is
tS, 944,907. Total operating expenses,
$o|328,284. Nearly four millions of in
terest on debt, lease of roads, new equip
ments, etc., in addition, has been paid.
During the year twenty-five persons
were killed; thirteen of these were rail
road employes, and thirty-four employes
and three passengers were injured.
One Flag, One Country.
The French Democratic Club of San
Francisco recently passed a resolution,
which the Bulletin of that city com
mends as an example which should be
followed by all citizens of foreign birth
who have adopted America as their
country:
"Whereas, foreigners once nasalized
are no longer foreigners, but American
citizens; therefore it is resolved that the
members of this club, in all public de
monstrations, will never carry any other
Hag than the one of the country of t heir J
adoption? the only one to which they
now owe allegiance.''
Says the bulletin-. "A man has no
more right to two countries than he has
to two wives. Any man who, after
swearing allegiance to the stars and
stripes, marches under the flag of the j
country which he has renounced, com
mits political bigamy.'
A Good Political Docnimnt.
The National Democratic committee
has issued a brief tabular statement of
Government expenditures under Grant s
Administration as compared with Dem
ocratic Administrations. The Lincoln
Administration is omitted in the com
parisons, because it had the expenses ol
the war. The cost per capita, exclusive
of interest on the public debt, according
to the Pierce Administration, was $1.96;
according to Buchanans, ?2.19; and
according to Grant's, $4.76, including
the principal aud interest on the public
debt. The amount per head in a popu
lation of forty millions is under Grant
ten dollars and twenty-eight cents. The
figures further show that Grant spends
per year $190,796,355, exclusive of prin
cipal and interest on the public debt,
being more than Polk, \ an Buren,
Pierce and Buchanan spent in lour
years. The total amount of taxes col
lected for the last fiscal year is placed
at ?41 1,255,000. These tables are all
compiled from official reports submit
ted to and printed by Congress.

Over-Doctored.
Without any disrespect to the members |
of the medical profession, a profession hon
ored by all thinking men, it is only just to
say that they are too thiek on the ground.
The consequence is that the community is
doctored over much. When nature needs
only the gentle stimulant and alterative,
which Las become lainous throughout the
country as a reliable medicine, under t lie
name of Hostettei 's Stomach Bitters, she is |
not uu frequently dosed with a dozen pre
script ions, all experimental, from the Phar
macopoeia. This is an evil, and proves that J
the practice of medicine is far from being at
all times a healing ait. At this period of
the year, when the fall of the leaf indicates
that decay has seized upon the vegetable
kingdom, many harassing diseases are prev
alent. Chief among these may be mention
ed intermittent fever and bilious remittent.
The exhalations rising liom the decompos
ing vegetation, and the heavy dews and
fogs, are very apt to generate those com
plaints. The wisest policy is to protect ihe
system by a course of Hostetters Stomach
Bitters at the commencement of the fall.
Much suffering may thereby be avoided.
But if the disease lias already begun, lis pe
riodical visitations may readily be checked. I
and broken up by this active, yet harmless,
vegetable tonic.
But be ou your guard against the charla
tans who are attempting 10 palm off, under
various names, unwholesome compounds,
which they pretend to compare favorably
with the great national elixir, which has
long since swept more formidable opposi
tion from tiie Held. Bear in mind that
every bottle of genuine nostetters's Stom
ach Bitters is authenticated by a splendidly
engraved label, and a fac simile of the sign
manual of the firm. I'ut up in bottles only,
and cannot be obtained in bulk.
