J11ES E. Cflia3ERS, - - - Editor. SATURDAY, - - MARCH 16, 1872. EBITOHHIi MBA6BAPH. Frfx-trade had a little victory the other clay in the Senate Finance Com mittee, which agreed to place a number of minor articles on the free list. More important than the entire list beside was noda-ash, from which the duty collected last "year was 700,000. If ye are to have free alkali c certainly have the right to look for cheap soap, and consequently a little more cleanliness in the councils of the nation and State. It sounds strangely indeel to hear men like Sumner, Trumbull, Schurtz and Greeley " denouuced as political tricksters and traitors to that party with which they have been so long connected because they oppose the renoinination of the present iuctimbent of the bite House. Especially does It sound strange ly to hear such denunciations from that class of men who have cinoe to be known 'as -'Administration Senators." When true men, tried by every test, unite in opposition to one whose avowed champi ons are political tricksters and dema eozues. is it not barely possible that, af ter all. there may become reason for such opposition. At all events it would lead one to think so the more, that tue mi- terest invective are hurled at the op position because of proposed investiga tions into alleged frauds. If there is nothing to conceal, the light of day can do no harm while if there is aught to h ide, those who advocate reform cannot onntiniinllv be termed untrue to the principles of the Republican party. In many States the selection of Jurors fnr ttin trial of tnv imnortant case is 8implv a farce of the most miserable de- Bcription. Under the present restric tions ignorance and callous indifference command a premium, and a man, in or der to be eligible, must prove himself a -nnnantitv. When newsDaoers are in i the hands of every one, and informa tion from every quarter of the globe is dally presented in their columns, Legis lators can be.gullty of no greater iony than to make that fact a reason for ae nyiug a man's ability to form a fair and Imn.irtlftl iudormeut. There Is a vast 1 of difference between a reporter'sjccount and the sworn testimony in a court of Justice concerning the same transaction, and because a man has read the one it is no reason why he cannot correctly judge according to the other. Any man who can swear that he is able to form an im partial judgment in accordance with the testimony, ought to bo deemed eligible for the duties of a juror. The tempta tion to perjury would be no greater than now for it is unite as easy to swear that one has no opinion as it would be tliat he was unprejudiced and it would pos sess the advantage or placing nonesiy and intelligence, at least, on a par with dishouesty and stupidity. Those who wondered why General Sickles returned from Spain can find an -answer in the account of the overthrow of the creat Erie monoploy, which will be found in another column. On Monday last the coup d'etat came, and New York received a sensation even more startling than any that have pre ceded it. In common with many others, we had supposed that In Jay Gould lay the sagacious brain and the unconquer able will, which have for so long con trolled tlie varying fortunes of the Erie road. We had supposed James Fisk, Jr., to be simply the glittering active ounterpart of the cool, wily schemer who held the position of President. But Ave now can see that all this was false. and. that the assassin's bullet which ended the career of the mountebank was no less fatal to the existence of the com Mnation known as the Erie Ring. Un doubtedly the deposed President will seek the arena of legal contest, but Gen, John A. Dix, the new President, and Ids associates are In possession, and it will take more force than the fallen hief. aided by Tweed and Connolly and nil the rest of the Tammany Ring, can bring to bear, to oust them. Certainly the cbuntry at large, as- well as the people of New York, have great reason to rejoice over the results of the past twelve months. Tax startling increase of all classes of crime is a' fact whose explanation, fortunately, suggests the remedy. With schools, and churches, and a preBS unequalled by that of any other country, the cause cannot be sought in the lack of popular education, the insuf ficiency of religious influences or the absence of the power of disseminating Intelligence. Neither will our statute books afford the desired information, for in them are ample provisions made for the punishment of every crime, and it wouid seem as if the fear of irupris : onment, or the dread of death ought to prove a sufficient check. Bu that all these combined are unable to prevent the work with knife or pistol, is amply pro ven by the records of our daily papers, The reason, then, must be elsewhere sought for, and suggests itself at once as being, that the sentence against offen ders Is never executed without that de lay which often results in escape. Money arid Influence can postpone a trial for months .after the commission of the rriine, and after conviction the thousand intricacies of the law are called in to aid in preventing the execution of the sen tence. The result h, mat criminals come . to calculate upon these chances, and '.coollv weish the probabilities of escape before striking down their chosen, vic tim. The remedy tor all tins win only tie found when such legislation isprovi- ded as to insure the prompt and stern infliction of the punishment decreed. With hope taken away the influence of wholesome fear will revive. Or late the Eastern papers have con tained frequent references to an institu tion that has sprung up in Boston, un der the name ot Jtoily Tree conee Rooms a name bv-the-wav taken from one of Dickens' tales. The dominant idea in their management is one that we have long advocated, and is in effect a practical concession of the truth of the view that the best, if not the ouly, way to successfully combat the sale of liquors is to provide some place which, while it shall be eouaiiy attractive witn tne ea loon, shall yet be conducted on strictly tetngerancc principles. By this means resort is provided, free from tempta tion, but abounding in all the essentials of comfort and cheerfulness. The New York Standard gives the following de scription of the new class or rooms j "In the management of these rooms the idea is to dispense with liquor and to nave excellent tea and cotlee. Unce a month evening parties of ladies and workinewomen meet together for social enjoyment. Those who hahitually visit tneeonee-rooius nnt lor tneir use, gratis. copies of the daily papers. An excel lent dinner is provided on Christmas, mid nil the workingmen have the use of a good library, and- the opportunity cf occupying decent beds. The best of coffee is to be enjoyed there at the low est possible price, and in addition to tills, tea, first-class bread and butter, and soup, meat, chowder and pies, are to be had, excellent in quality and at cheap rates." So far as tried, the experiment has nroven in the ingnest uegree successuu. and all drinking shops In the vicinity of these places are lnvanaDiy cioseu, sooner or later. It is truly fighting the Devil with his own weapons, and cannot but commend itself to every one who has thought or reasoned upon this subject. With such modifications as would beren- dered necessary by the difference in lo cation, could not some such liwtitiitiou be made to do au immense amount of ood here? NEWS OF THE WEEK; .A.T HOME. East, West, North & South. o Late Foreign Advices GENERAL 3STEWS SsO., &0-, &cCJ. The Sex ate Pesume for the weekend ing Mirth ith. On Wednesday the 6th, a number of nominations made by .the Governor were continued, and some ten or a dozen bills introduced, among which latter was one by 3lr. Stiinson to divide the State into Congressional districts. Three bills, of no general in terest, were passed, and one or two joint resolutions relative to printing intro duced, but at an early hour the Senate adjourned. On Thursday a large num ber or memorials ana pennons were presented, principally in reference to the proposed indications of the existing liquor laws. The President also lant before the Senate the report of Railroad Commissioner Harrison, in reference to the existing system or classification or freights by railroads in this State. The report shows that there is no general system, and recommends the adoption of a list appended to the report. Sev eral bills were introduced, and Ave or six passed, among which were Mr. Wil liams's House Dill authorizing townsnip clerks to administer oaths and certify to affidavits, and Mr. Case's House bill re quiring county commissioners to pun- lish annual statements ot tne nnanciai affairs of each county in at least one newspaper of general circulation iu the county. riuay was taicen up oy per sonal explanations, the passage of a few local bills and the introduction oi near ly a score of other proposed changes and uew laws, miring tne nay air, jemter rose to a question of privilege concern ing certain statements that hacl been published as to him, and in the course of the discussion which followed several sharp passages of words took place be tween uimself,Mr. IIart,Mr. Patrick and President Mueller. As a consequence, a large portion of the following day, Sa turday, was taken up in enaeavorntg to correct the Tournal when it gave an ac count of the matter. The ditnculty was found insurmountable, and the at tempt: to satisfy both Democratic and Republican Senators' was ended by' adopting a resolution' to expunge-the whole of that part of the record having reference to the' explanation or the en suing controversy, several petitions were presented, and a number of bills passed, among which were-Mr. McFar land's House bill to allow the admission of partners into a firm without change of Arm name. Mr. Leed's Senate bill to allow clerks and. judges of election, two dollars each, and Air. .Hurphy's senate bill fixing ' the standard weight per bushel of corn in the-car at seventy pounds until January 1st of each year next alter it has been raised, ana from and after that time at sixty-eight pounds ; of cloyer seed at sixty pounds, instead of sixty-two pounds as now ; and of oats at thirty-two pounds, instead of thirty- three pounds as at present. Monday was occupied with miscellaneous busi ness, m the course ot wtncu a tew mils were passed, among which were 31 r. Steele's House bill authorizing .the trustees of Madison,' Lake county,, to transfer the balance of the unexpended money raised for town hall purposes to the general township fund, anil Mr. Jones of Trumbull's bHl to provide that all accounts of County Commissioners, other than for services other than At tendance upon the .regular sessions of the Board, or necessary1 expenses, snail not be paid until they are verined by af fidavit of the Commissioners, approved by the Prosecuting Attorney, and allow ed by the Court of Common Pleas. On Saturday the only business of any inter est was the passage or Mr. shank's House bill to compel judges of election to remain in session until all the votes ast at their precinct have been counted. It forbids the removal ot the ballot cox from the presence of all the judges. The liotsB Kesume ' for tne useek ending March 12fA. Wednesday and Thursday were both entirely occupied with business of a nature to interest only those locally benefitted, the time being taken up in the introduction, consideration and passage of. bills for local relief or local advantage. On Fri day a large number of bills, were intro duced and some miscellaneous nusiness transacted the only item of especial interest being the passage of the bill to create an insurance department passed as it came from tne hen ate, with a trif ling verbal amendment. It nxes the term of office of the Commissioner of In surance at three years, and the salary at three thousand dollars, tne salary and expenses to be paid from money recei ved on . assessments made upon insur ance companies in this State. But Sat urday and Monday were similar days to those immediately preceding, so far as that the business transacted was of no interest to any save a few benefitted by tne legislation, un tne latter day, now ever, the bill introduced by Mr. Smith of Montgomery, to require life insur ance companies, Detore doing business in this state, to nie witn tne superin tendent of Insurance a waiver of the right to transfer suits to United States courts, was passed, Tuesday was passed in general discussion and the considera tion and reception or the usual Dumber or memorials ana petitions. On Moridav night, at Cincinnati, the steamers Abeona, Kate Koblnson, St Charles, Argosy, Major Anderson, and Champion, and the hull of the Belle vernon, sunken recently Dy the ice, were burned. The fire originated aft in the St. Charles, which was the third boat from the wharf afloat just above the Suspension Bridge. - How the fire orig inated is not known. The captain and some others on the St. Charles jumped overboard and swam ashore, it is tear- ed some on board failed to escape. The tire spread up and down the stream rap idly, -me wnart Doat, next to' wmch tne Abeona was lying, was about nan burned. The Kate Robinson was load ing for the Tennessee river.- She was a stern wheel boat, value with freight probably $20,000. The St; Charles was a side wheel boat, in the Pittsburg trade, The Argosy belonged to captain bhunk was loading ior ..New uneans, and iiau two hundred barrels or whisky ou board. She had no insurance on the boat. With freight her loss was about $12,000. The Major Anderson was fine side wheel packet in the Wheeling trade, she was loaded with freight Loss, with cargo, $75,000. The Cham pion was the highest boat upon the river, and last to take fire. She was stern wheeler, and was loaded with fur niture and.other freight lor ited river, Her owners were captains isnani auu Williamson. Her value was $6,000, and freight valued at $10,000. The total loss cannot be definitely Ascertained or. re liably estimated. Many ot tne boats are small, and most ot them old. An ap proximate estimate would be $200,0000 to $225,000.

Kussell Gurney has taken passage for London bv the steamer of March 30. Thus far about two hundred claims have been presented. It is the opinion that the misunderstanding about the Treaty of Washington has had the effect of deterring some of the claimants from going to the expense of preparing cases, and eonsea nen tly the number Is smaller than if such misunderstanding had not occurred. Serious apprehensions are felt that i collision will take place between Cana dian and American -fishermen during the coming spring, and our Government will dispatch a naval force to the fishing grounds witn instructions to tne omcers to avoid au attempts to oe drawn into . difficulty.

It follows that the lioie of rescuing the country from Im perialism and corruption depends solely on the union of all elements of opposi tion. To secure this union and to achieve the victory which it most assures that it is necessary that the Convention at Cin cinnati shall recognize the wide and spontaneous expressions of popular ap provrfl that have been elicited by the e-. lection of the candidate wnith was made at Columbus. MISSOURI.. The State Senate passed a resolution that isalike unconstitutional and inex pedient, to increase the present State debt by loaning the credit of the State to any railroad or other corporation.

Govern ment bonds, in view of their negotia bility,, are usually considered, the most convenient, railroad bonds the most profitable, and real estate mortgage, the most secure. '..'-""" Jt is the peculiar feature of the Xorth ern Pacific first mortgage land grant bonds, which- arc now offered in this market, that- they combine, the advan tages of all three classes of- securities. In the first- place, they arc a real es tate mortgage, ou oyer fifty million acres of the inost valuable lands iu the Xorth-went. worth, at the lowest esti mate, three times, the amount .secured. In the second place, they are a first mortgage on the great, Xorthern high way to the Pacific, which ossesses in comparable advantages over - any other trans-coiuinental line. And, lastlv, tliev will be as negotiable as a Government- bond, their- iutrodnc- j tion upon the German and Knglish mar- ket, having met 'with favor that gives I them a distinct value in any money market in the world. in addition to all this, they bear a higher rate of interest than any other first-class security, and are sold at a very low price, which is liable to lie ad vanced at anv moment.

Those disasters which break down the spirit of a man, and prostrate him in the dust, seem to call forth till the ener gies of the softer spx,-and give such in trepidity anil elevation of the character, that at times it, approaches to sublimity. Nothing can be more touching than "to behold a soft and teuder female, who had been all weakness and dependence, and alive to every trivial roughness, while treading the prosperous, paths of life, suddenly rising in mental force to be the. comforter and supporter of her husband under misfortune, and abiding, with unshrinking firmness, the bitterest blasts of adversity; As the vine which has long twined its graceful foliage about the oak, and been lifted by it in sun shine, will, when the hardy plant. is rifted by the thunderbolt, cling round it with caressing tendrils, and bind up its shattered boughs; so it is beautifully or dered by Providence that woman, "who is the mere dependant aud ornament of man In his happier hours, should bo his stay aud solace when smitten with sud den calamity; winding herself into the rugged recesses of his nature, tenderly supporting his drooping bead, and bind ing up the broken heart. The Northern Pacific In Great Britain. The people of Great Britain find in the Xorthern Pacific Railway not only a profitlble and desirable field for invest ment, but a powerful agency for the consolidation and development of their colonial possessions extending from Hali fax .to the Pacific Ocean, and for the maintenance of their trade with the far East. Below arc given brief extracts from recent articles in leading British journals, which indicate- the. cordial good will extended to the enterprise by the English Public : . "The whole area of England and Scotland is about fifty-seven million acres, and that of Englaiid,.Scotl.-ind and Ireland is about seventy-live millions; so that the territory given by the Ameri can Government to the Xorthern Paci fic Railway Company exceeds that of Great'Britain by three millions of acres, and is only fifteen millions of acres less than the whole area of the United King dom. Our interest in this particular American enterprise arises from the circumstance that it appears to open up to us a portion of our own do minions which have hitherto lieen al most inaccfissable, . In short from the Eastern to tho Western termi nus of the line tho route of this road traverses a region most desirable, for settlement and rich in resources, hose, development will lie almost as profita ble to British as to American interests.

So many agents are now going about the country trying, to persuade and unfortunately too often succeed In selling pianos of an inferior make that I take this opportunity of warning people against these impos ters, and telling them to take none hut one of those makes which I have named, viz :' Hazelton, Stelnway, and Chicker ing; and my advice is to take tlie Hazelton.
