The New Government Loan.
8oe Of th Administration papers hsve been'
eiultlBgover tb etatement that th new gov.
raaaenl loan for eight million, bids for which
war opened by Secretary Chasi on the 3d bat.,
has all bee take. Bach la not th fact, Mr.
Caasa decided to accept ao .bUls for lee than
aim t'firar dollar oa the one aondred. The
oauqnenc 1 that only a Utile over three asil-
Iloni have been actually taken .
It waa reported that, for the remalnlngfflve
KlUloae, Secretary Caasa wonld Isene Treasury
aotas. to be discounted at a rat not leas than
ainety four percent ; Bat th latest news from
Washington I that ha has concluded to adver
tise ana for proposal, and that th notlo will
hepubllehed forthwith.
. .Th decision of Secretary Caaea, ia fixing
vyn elaety-fonr p cent, u the minimum
Blind ard at which he would receive bid for th
loen, ha subjected htm to some Ipretty severe
suiotures' tn financial olrolceC v Borne hhArao-
torlse it as' great a blunder as ever Secretary
Coss committed. ; By fixing . npou the precise
rats of nlnatT-fouilper eenC, he ao managed that
one large moneyed inetitutlon in New York
fitly. lhBtkot Commerce, became Boctesi-1
ful bidder for two millions and a half out of the
three millions that were taken. Had therd been
the variation of a small fraction either hbove
or below th. jalnety-four pet eent i this. large bid
from a single moneyed o orporation would hare
been exoluded, or the entire loan ol eilgbl jnil
lloni wonld hve been 'negotiated.1 It is also a
slngolar circumstance, from which people will
naturally draw their own Burmises, that, some
sixteen or seventeen hours before theopeniog
of the bids, it was telegraphed from Washing
ton to New York that no bids would be taken
at leas thaa ninety four per cent.
It is estimated that, by taking bids under
ninety-four per cent., the Government would
have to pay about, thirty-five thousand dollars
more than It would, had the entire loan been
taken at that rate. But this sum is not more
than one-half of what th Bank of Commerce
made by its successful bid. Besides, If the na
tional troubles continue to inorease, it may be
come Impossible to get tho balance of the loan
taken at the bids offered on the 3d lest. The
three millions will not, last many days; very
little Is oomiog Into the Treasury from customs
and before long the Government may be without
a dollar of available funds.
Old Abe a Deceiver—The Lamentations of a
Disappointed Office Hunter.
Mr.'DsNur, of the Dayton OtuUt, in his ps
per of the 6th Instsnt, has a leader of more than
three columns In length, narrating his effort
and failure to obtain the Dayton Post Office.
We wiih we had space for the whole of It,
since It wonld be interesting to the publio, and
perhaps serviceable to the maas of anxious men,
whose name is legion, who are in pursuit ot of
fice at Washington. The following extract from
Mr. Diiwt's article will attraot attention, de
veloping, as it does, the real character of Asa
Baa IiInooln:

In answer to my Inquiry as to tb probable time 'hat be
wonld bo able to look over tbe papers, he remarked that
it might be week, perhaps months." "Then," (aid I.
"It is net worth while for tb applicant to rematn at
Washington, on txpeneel" HCertalnly not," he ob
served. I also reminded blm of tbe rule he sad
adopted, Tlx : tbat when there ws no Republican Bep-nasntauv.-
the Benatota should decide; and that,
es senator Wade bad recommended me. and Mr.
Bhermaa refuted to Interfere In tbo esse, I was fairly
entitled to the office. To this be made Ho direct reply,
except to any, that "th nee should be determined on Its
aeriti." 1 then stated tbat my testimonials were exceed
ingly strong. Tbat I was recommended by Judge Mo
Lean, wbo had known m from my boyhood; by seven
teen members of tbe lectors! College, of Ohio; by Chief
Juitloe Brinkerhoff, and tb Auditor and Secretary of
Btato; by Bam- Galloway, etantou, Blake, uuriey, uov.
Morton, O. M. Clay, Briggs, Haneurek, Defrees, Caleb
B. Bmlth, fee, Ac. and also by ton members of the Be
nnhtieui Deleeatlon In Control. In addition, I bed
petiiioii from Ave hundred of tbe beat oltisen of Peyton
ssa vMtnlty, ana xroea icnwentuu pereene in every sowa
ty in thi Congressional District and we likewise reo
ommended by all tbe Bepabiloan membtis of Congress in
th adjoining Districts; thus showing, tbat no man could
bavs a stronger claim tn tb cfBc. I remarked to him,
at tbe oioee of the Interview, "thst If he htdany doubt a
to who weetb choice of the people or usy ion, I was per
fectly willing to submit the question to th BepabUcans
of Dayton, or to tee peopi a wkuoo, niutosi regera w
party." Haagaia assured me, that "he wonld examine
toe matter at nia leisure, ana, maxe n uu nn unpannu

plicity, r tbtt, when be had taken a poeillos, be oould be
forced oat of it by tht ataalpnlaUoae of an adroit and
bold man. Tb sequel shows that 1 ws mistaken, lo
less than twenty minutes after 1 had left tht President,
the tempter came, and "Old Abe' luocusibed, that giving
evktenes that, under strong preaiur. and confronted by
a nu f indomitable energy and iron will, he eras weak
enough to again bare "a M ttoitUd out of MmP Th
manner In which th thing was don was about asfol

The CHAIRMAN reed the first section. ' '
Mr. 8CHLE1CH I move to strike out

"Republicans." '
Tbe CHAIR declared the amendment agreed
to. . . .
. M. PARISH defended the bill. It wss neo
eaaarv In soma sections of tb State. ' Blat k-
birds were troublesome and destructive to the
orons In Ot'owa county. It bad been found
naraaaarv to offer nubile rewards tor the destrue

this bill aa there was for the otherease. 1 He did
not think It a case Tor ridicule, ae the object is

Mr. FISHER asked whether the bill is con
stitutional. Have w a right to "appropriate

Mr- GARFIELD : made some practical re
marks about the "bong of sixpence,'' whioh tbe
reporter could not hear.";.
Mr.. FISHER moved to amend the 6th sec
tion, as follows: "Provided thst nothinff herein
afaall be so construed as to require the Auditor
to deetroy those which twrs blackbirds, but only
thoaa that are at the time blackbirds." '
Mr. FISHER raised the Question whether
dead blackbirds are blackbirds, and proved the
contrary " ;' '
Mr. PARISH appealed to Dr. Fisher, as a man
of experlenoe, to atate whether a man tbat is
dead wss not a maa if the deed body Is not the
oorpeoof A man. " -.' '
Mr. FISHER was satisfied that, as a dead
blackbird is aot a live blackbird, therefore the
corpse of a blackbird is note blackbird; ergo,
toe Auditor oouia not nu toe diii.
The CHAIR thought this sound philosophy,
clear logic, eud sharp argumentation.
Mr. eTa80N moved to stnks out of section

SCOTT, of Warren, explained to tha

Mr CARTISLE opposed the report, and moved
that the same be referred to a select oommiUee

project one year ago, by tha introduetioa of a
resolution asking aa appropriation nejecesary to
tha raising of th level oa tha canal between
Ltnoaster, on th Hcokiog, and Basil, oa tha
Ohio caaaL so aa to admit of steam navigation.
And claimed that tha Hocking canal was one tf
tha beet paying canals la toe Btate., While, it
tha same was so improved aa to admit steam
navigation, tbat the recelptejon that canal wonld
donbla Its present reoeipta. , For in its preeent,
as well aa in its history lor a few years past, at
least, that canal had been In each a condition
aa to almost preclude the possibility of naviga
ting it, owing to elides or slips in the banks, with
a sort of floating aubstanoe In tha bottom, whioh
materially interiere wiut successful navigation;
and that, by raising the aaid level, a largely ia1
creased trad would be bad on that canal, and
the receipts largely Increased; that these peti
tions should have the , reference he had asked,
that thev could have a more favorable eonside

water with suob intent, even though no one
be poisoned thereby, which; is not provided for In
mo present statute; and be oould not see why
the committee reported as they did.
Mr. ROBINSON explained, for the com
mittee, that they thought tba (bill would Punish
nnconsummated crimes, and it left no room for a
person commencing to commit a murder by
poisoning, to repent and retrace his stens.
Mr. BROWNE, of Miamlfdelendea the bill,
contending that the ess'eooe of a orirae is the ma
licious Intent, and as when we punish crime, law
always measures tne quality or It by tbe in
tent, the preparation o( poison most j certainly
dessrves punishment.'
Mr. WOODS reiterated the reasons ot Mr.
Robinson, that it made the crime to consist of
those ioitisry step ofjjeime, which may bs re
traced, and the opportunity to retrace, which
ahould always be left open.

stating that he wot seventy four years of age.
snd that the cold, current that he was exposed to
was too inuuh for a Aian of his years and Infirm
