H. Q. White, T. B. CnaniiishMB, BOITOU AVD nOrSIKTOBS. Miixkbsbcbg, : : : Feb. 6, 1873. AN INSINUATION. A Chicago paper basely insinu " ates that the jiefeat of Frank Blair for a seat in the Senate has caused " a panic among the Washington sa loon keepers. STANDS FIRM. General Grant stands firmly by the civil service rules, and the poli- i ticians havs stopped fighting him in - his new policy, finding that it don't do any good. The latest notable instances is in the appointment of Deoutv Surveyor Benedict as Sur veyor of the port of New York, in place of Connell resigned. And the people say, let the good work go on VETOING. President Grant has pat his foot down again on the question of pay ing for damages to Southern prop . erty by the war. This time it is by vetoing the bill donating a certain amount for the relief of the East . Tennessee University on account of its losses by the ravages of war. me -resident is right in saying that if the door is once opened for this sort of claims, "the end on the 1 Trea3ury could not be estimated." STOKES' COUNSEL. Stokes' counsel are indefatigable. Failing in a new trial Iroin Judge . Boardman, they will severally as sault the eight Supreme Judges, and then the Court of Appeals. The only way to secure the carrying out of the sentence is to refuse a stay of proceedings. New York Supreme Court law will always be a mixed ffair so long as eight judges have concurrent jurisdiction. It would seem that the Erie injunction cases might have taught them this. FRANKING PRIVILEGE ABOLISHED. The President yesterday signed the act of Congress, abolishing the franking privilege, on and after July next. So that old abuse is among the rubbish which the Republican majority in Congress has swept out, since it came into power. The Post Office Department, being relieved . oi mis nuge incuDus, will De en abled to pay its own expenses, and the people will obtain lower letter postage in the future. NEXT GOVERNOR. The Democrats are beginning to talk up Tom Ewing as their next candidate for Governor, while John T. Wilson, of Adams county, is pressed by some Southern Ohio Re publicans for the Gubernatorial nomination on the ground that that section ought to have its equal chance. But isn't Cincinnati in Southern Ohio, and do not Gover nors Cox and Hayes live there and didn't Governor Noyes come from there? By the way, why not renom inate Noyes? A BEGINNING. never cease. A meeting of slaveholders has been held in Havana, Cuba, at which the question of abolition was freely dis cussed, and the prevailing senti ment appeared to favor the idea. The grandees wanted the slaves, on gaining their freedom, to enter into contracts for eight to twelve years' service, at from one to five dollars per month. That will do a begin ning; anything to break the ice. But the hand-writing on the wall is plainly seen, and1 ere long the ac cursed institution will disappear . from the face of the earth. SEVERE WINTER. (Tl . . xue present winter Has been so severe in every section that it has called forth frequent comment, and yet no comparisons that have been made with previous temperature seems to portray fully the severity or the season. Advices from the West show that on the line of the Union Pacific Railroad the cold has been simply terrible. Men have been frozen to death from mere ex posure, and numbers more deprived of the use of members under simi larly slight circumstances. Near Salt Lake, snow rests ten feet deep on the level land. INCREASE OF THE DEBT EXPLAINED. ED. The reason of the increase of the public debt is stated at the Treas ury Department to be on account of the payment during the past month of interest on Pacific Rail road companies bond over the amount retained from pay for serv ices rendered of $1,826,274. But for this the debt would have been decreased f 1,420,030 88. There was also disbursed from the treasury during January, in addition to or dinary expenses, $1,240,000 to the Board of Public Works in this city, ana one million on account of de ficiencies in postal revenue, making the total amount of extraordinary expenditures during January $4,- 006,294. ; . - DEAD LETTERS. The number of letters, domestic ana roreign, received at the Dead letter Office during the last year was as follows: Domestic Letters classed as Or dinary, 2,925,015; Drop, 542,804 Unmailable, 279,324; Hotel, 2M05 Fictitious.35,095; Registered, 5,152- y5?edT f!T foreien countr ieg; cn- 7, ' domestic letters, 13, t90 , 714. loreign letters, 244.609. Whole number, 4,241,374 Of the unmailable letters, 312 846 were detained for postage,not bring prepaid, as required by law. Thfly were either wholly unpaid one full rate, or were stamped with illegal or revenue stamps; 62,337 were misdi rected . the post office, State,or some necessary . part of the address being omitted, and,, 4,641 had no address in of FORTY-THIRD CONGRESS. The roll of the Forty-third Con gress will be notable for the absence of many names which have figured thereon, some of them for many years. Among them are senators Trumbull, Harlan, Blair, Nye, and Sawyer; and Representatives Fams wortb, Bingham, Cox, Kerr, Voor hees, Banks, Blair (of Michigan), Bird, Hill, Slocum, Ketcham, Camp bell, Shellabarger. Morgan, Van Trump, Mercur.and Stevenson. The places of some of these are filled with better men, and of some most likely not' so good. A majority of changes are, however, for the better, Democrats and Liberals being suc ceeded by sound and true Republi cans. EX-EMPRESS CARLOTTA. The expected death of the unfor tunate Carlotta, the widow of Max imilian, at Dresden, the capital of Saxony, will form the last sad chap ter of the terrible drama of the Mex ican Empire. Few characters in history occupy so conspicuously ro mantic a position. '. The death of her husband'gave her mind a shock from which it never fterwanls re covered. Of late years the delu sions entertained by the lonely wo man have been singular in the ex treme. She, for weeks together, supposes herself in Mexico still. Her life has been in memory; the dark past so occupies her as to ob literate the present and bar out a future. Pitied of all the world, it will remain for the historian and poet to properly tell the tale of her strange life. COMPULSORY EDUCATION. Following in the footsteps of New Hampshire, Michigan and Tex as, where a compulsory school law is in operation, and in those of Penn sylvania, where a similar measure will unquestionably soon be passed, comes the great State of New York proposing an amendment to its Con stitution, providing for the compul sory education of children. The conditions that in this country de termine the standard of the general welfare are industry, perseverance and honesty the legitimate, if not always the necessary outcome of education. What we specially need here, is to have society strengthen ed at its base. General intelligence is better than special learning. It will be a good day for the Republ when every State in the Union shall have its compulsory educational system, faithfully enforced. A NOVEL QUESTION. A novel question has just come before the Postmaster General for decision, which involves a principle of some importance to newspapers, editors and publishers. It appears that the office, types and presses of the Belltonte-Bejiublican, a weekly newspaper published in Pennsylva nia, were sold by the Sheriff recently the purchasers continuing the pub lication of the paper. The original proprietor contends that the good will and name of the paper were not sold. He therefore continues the publication of the same sheet in an adjacent office in the same town ; and the point at issue is as to which of the two parties the ex changes and other mail matter shall be delivered. Some time ago, the case of a dissolved partnership, where contention arose as to who was the proper person to receive communications addressed to the former firm, the postmaster bein forbidden by one party to deliver to the other, the Department instruct ed the postmaster to require them to appoint a receiver, and to retain all mail matter in his own custody until such appointment should have been made. ' The question now un j . . - . uer consideration is , in some re spects of a similar respects of a similar character, and it is under stood that the Postmaster-General intends, in deciding it, to give a gen era! decision relating to all such cases. THE FRANKING PRIVILEGE. It is quite possible that many re gard the abolition of the franking privilege as a trifle, scarce worth so much ado as has been made over it This presumption is erroneous. The reform is important, and has a large cash value, for the burden which the franking privilege imposed upon the treasury had assumed monstrous proportions, amounting to nearly 3,0(KJ,000 annually. In 1870, the cost to the department was $2,643,- 327 72; in 1871 it was still greater, and in the political campaign of last year cost no less than $3,600,000, a sum larger than the entire deficien cy of the department. In addition to this enormous cost, the mail de livery of the country was delayed and disarranged by the bulk of mat ter suddenly showered ' upon the routes. THE WAY THEY GO. The Cincinnati Gazette very tru ly says: Frank Blair, Senator from Mis soun, is added to the growing list of gentlemen who, once trusted by the Republicans, turned their back upon that party, and are now rctir ed. - Mr.Blair attempted to break up the Republican party, and assisted by Mr. Schurz put the Democrats power in Missouri. He is now ordered by his new associates to take a back seat. Schurz's turn will come next. Trumbull, of Illi nois is also overboard. Fenton of New York, and Tipton,of Nebraska, are moving toward the, fatal point with heads down and leels up. Dixon of Connecticut, and Doolittle Wisconsin.preceded them. Farns worth, of Illinois, and' Banks, of Massachusetts, are also politically dead. For the so-called "indepen dent" Senators, Reprcsentative8,and newspapacrs there seems to be no place except in the seats very far hack in the Democratic party. In the latter they are wanted, not as leaders,but as assistants. ly in lic the of THE TWEED TRIAL. The counsel for. Tweed admit that the disagreement of the jury was "a great and unexpected vLtory" for their client, and express surprise that any of the jurymen should fa vor acquittal after Judge Davis' damaging charge. The counsel for the prosecution are indignant and chagrined, and think that the jury have been tampered with and in fluenced by mercenary motives. So it seems the lawyers on both sides are disappointed, and virtually agree in the opinion which is. universal with the public, that Tweed's escape from justice was the greatest fraud of his whole career. Postive information that this the case has been obtained, and will probably be made the basis of ac tioii against the jurymen who were bought up. One juryman boasted, before he went on the jury, that if he could fret on he would make money out of the job. Undoubted ly he did, and the ten others who voted with him to clear Tweed. The escape of Tweed in this manner an outrage on justice, law, and pub lic decency. He is the greatest thief of the age, and the most un blushing. His career is a scandal and disgrace to the American name and his last act of rascality is brib ing the jury which ought to have convicted him. The re-trial of the case will begin again with as little delay as possible, and the outraged public demand that it be conducted to a just conclusion. Latest advice from New York port one of the twelve to have been a common loafer,whose opinions of equality and justice were ainplifi ed by the present of a new suit of clothes from Tweed's friends; a sec ond had privately announced his in tent to turn an honest penny out of his situation in the box; and a third was a self-confessed offender of the revenue laws,who had served a term in a Virginia prison for his eccen tricities. These things did not come to light until after the jury had been sworn. Mr. Tremaine, counsel for the prosecution, maintains that the panel was prepared directly Tweed's interest propositian which the developments of the case would of themselves seem to indicate. Now if this be so, it opens a fine opper tnnity to punish some of the corrupt officers of the New York Courts, for surely if crime of such sort has been committed,there is enough detective skill in New York to find proof of it. THE SAMANA BAY PURCHASE. The New York Time gives the details of the late purchase of Sam ana Bay, the peninsula, and territo ry adjacent by a company of Capi talists of New York and Philadel phia. Fifteen men have united and formed a company, with a capital ot twenty million dollars, and have just concluded with President Baez a contract for the purchase of the Bay, which is pronounced by far the best in the West . Indies, with the entire peninsula, and adjoining ter ritory. This is to be entirely under their control, as much so as if ceded in the United States. It is expected that all the bene fits of annexation will result to the United . States bv this movement without any of the complications that the proposed treaty carried with it The Island is fully equal to Cuba for the production of sugar and coffee, and it is expected that as Samana is 'to be a free port without any duties of import or export that a large -commercial city - will soon spring up that will eclipse every oth er point in the West Indies. Plans for building wharves,hotels,etc., are already adopted. In the end the Is land of San Domingo will come un derthe control of United States. In every respect this is an important step in the progress of the -country GENERAL HOWARD VINDICATED. For two years and over, General Howard has been maligned,reproach ed, villined and condemned by the partizan press on charges of mal ad ministration of the Freedmen's Bu reau, extending to personal corrup tion in the use of the resorces at his command as the head of that de partment The accounts of the Bureau have all this time been un dergoing carefull and expert exami nation, and the result reached shows that the accounts of .General How ard were correct, but that, by a cler ical error, he stood indebted to the government in the sum of $32,54! General Howard gave a check for that amount, and his account is square. - Ibis is a most creditable showing, and no officer of the gov ernment, having such large discre tionary authority and handling such large sums of money and valuable real property,' as General Howard done in connection with the Freedmen's Bureau, can point to a clearer or a more honorable record. The name of General Howard willal ways be remembered with honor and gratitude for his great and time services to the blacks of the South uring their transition from slaves tofreemen. IMPORTANT SUBJECT. Attention is now being directed almost all parts of the country to certain serious defects in the pub school system as it is practiced. Chief among the causes for com plaint is the fact that nine-tenths of teachers rarely enjoy the benefit special training for their work be entering-upon it, and conse quently are apt to tungle it until they approach to perfection through I experience in the schools an end sometimes never attained, and un usually not before many years. . It ight pay to give some serious, thoughful attention to this subject so far as it appertains to Ohio. There is abundant room for reform. the for at by FIRST RAILROAD TRAIN IN ENGLAND. The first railway train in Eng land started between Liverpool and Manchester forty -two years ago, in 1830, and the papers over there are only now beginning to discuss the propriety of adopting the Ameri can system of checking baggage. Up to this time, every railway pas senger in England has been obliged to look after his own luggage, often being sorely tried and delayed in consequence. NEW RAILROAD. The New line known as the Ches apeake and Ohio Railroad, extend ing from tide-water at Richmond, Va to Huntingdon, on the Ohio River, has been completed, and will soon be opened for traffic and trav el. The road passes through the Blue Ridge and Alleghanies, and is said to be built in a superior and economical manner. The grades are slight and the curvatures easier than any of the great through lines. It passes through a country teem ing with mineral wealth, the finest and heaviest beds of coal, iron, etc. Its connections through to Cincin nati will soon be completed, and the new route to sea promises to prove one of the most important in the country. STEAMER MURILLO. The latest dispatches confirm the rumor that it was the Spanish steam er Murillo whieh sank the ill-fated Northeflet, but assure us of her own safety. Her desertion of the sink ing wreck seems to have been as needless as it was inhuman. She had sustained no injury herself, and her crew was at perfect liberty to rascue the drowning. The lack of an extradition treaty prevents the officers being handed over to British trial and justice, and it is hardly probable that they will receive much punishment in Spain. GATHERING NOTABLES. As a gathering of notables, the Vienna World's Fair promises to outdo all its predecessors. The Em peror of Germany is to be there, so are the Czar, President Thieres.the Shah of Persia, and the. Prince of Wales,not to mention the Hospodar of Montenegro, Prince Bismark,and a host of Cabinet Ministers of all nations. There will be material enough at Vienna for a great Euro pean Congress, such as the late Em peror Napoleon used to dream of, and it is to be hoped that the assem bled magnates may turn their social hob-nobbing to some good purpose. BLACK SNOW. The Keokuk (Iowa) Constitution of the 13th, says: '"On last Tuesday afternoon commenced the greatsnow storm of tne winter, and the great est snow storm of the West for ma ny years. It continued until Wed nesday afternoon; then set in a fu nous wind, wbich took the snow from the hills and piling it up in the valleys. On Thursday morning the inhabitants of the northern portion of the State, when they awoke, were not a little surprised at seeing the earth covered with black instead of a white garment, as it was on the night before. . This strange and un natural phenomenon is accounted for on the suppositisn that after the wind had swept the snow off the hills then the dry earth was taken up and scattered over the face of the snow giving it the peculiar coloring, lhis would be the satisfactory ex pianation it this unusual appear- ance had been confined to localities, but accounts say it was general. WHAT IS IT? A Washington correspondent thus explains the meaning of Credit Mo- buier: ... "What is this Credit Mobilier that they are making such a fuss about down stairs?" said one man to another. "Why," answered the other, with superior air, "don't you know? Some of these Congressmen went down to Mobile last summer and ran up great bills; and now they are making a row because the Ho- outers are after them to make them pay their debts." An Oregon editor thinks that off ering a bounty for Modoc scalps would be the surest way to make the red man keep his wigwarm. Tin and zine mines are reported to have been discovered in Pike County, Ind., Whether the ore is in paying quantities remains to be ascertained. The accused Congressmen should fly to the life of George Washing ton, and find out how sumptuously he fared because of having told the truth with his little hatchet. Most of them, we are sorry to say, have told, a lie with their little hatch it It is said that 2,000 suits have been brought against parties in New York who have failed to have the snow promptly removed from the sidewalk in front of their prem ises. As a rule they have been dis missed on the payment of cost Dio Lewis himself would be puz zled to know how the officers of the penitentiary at Sing Sing contrive purchase diamond pins and cor- nor lots out of twenty cents per prisoner per day, and yet have a surplus to wast in feeding the prison er. In naming the Anchor line of steamships only sixteen letters of the alphabet have been left out, the names or tUe thirty-four vessels of the fleet commencing with A and ending with V. In marine circles the line is known as the "alphabeti line." A cow owned by a blacksmith in Alfcrd;N. Y.,was recently butchered aiid her stomach was found to con tain four poundsof horseshoe nails and a large quantity of old iron. Iron being good for the blood, of course she was a healthy cow. At a meeting of the Pbiladelnhia itizens' Committee of Three Hun dred, for the Centennial, yesterday, City Councils were nsked to ap- pronraite a million dollars for the Centennial Kxposition; thev also asked of the Legislature and Con gress that le ohitions be adopted stuting that the project is patriotic, appealing to Mm whole country aid. The total amount pledged the meeting was one hundred and eiglity-niue thousand dollurs a to tal of over six hundred thousand dollars which has been subscribed Philadelphia alone. i -ll nl-la II ti -ii on FROM ORRVILLE. ORRVILLE, Feb. 3d, '73. Eds. Republican: Grim win ter continues to hang on with a per sistency not lately known in this region. Some days there are slight signs of a break up only to be fol lowed by an extreme cold spell in turn. Yesterday was the well-known ground hog day, and if his hogsh ip concluded to cease sucking his toes for a while and come out into the world to ascertain how the old thing works, and get a sniff of fresh air, he certainly made up his mind tore turn to his little bed for another six weeks nap, if there is any truth in the oft repeated prediction. The ground hog theory met with a most signal failure two or three years ago. The keeper of the zoological gar dens in Cincinnatic published a card stating what he knew about the re liability of the frOund hog sign from a number of years observa tions, but his prognostications were completely refuted and contradicted by the actions of the weather King in the season which followed. This like all other moon signs, unlucky days, fcc, belongs entirely to the davs of. snrjerstition and witchcraft, and cannot withstand the light of 0 science and sound Philosophy.- Dozens of times during the past an- tumn we could -read accounts of how the beavers and muskrats had neg- lected to prepare their winter quart- ers as substantially as had been their habit.

The beavers could not have had a correct report from "Old Probabilities." Raiiroading is yet very rough pastime.

UrtOn all this, we have only to say that the presumption oi innocence is still in Mr. Colfax s favor.for he has alwava been an upright and honest man, while his accuser, Oakes Ames, is maniiestiy a rogue, almost certainly a uiat.iii.uer, not lmprooaDly a per- urer. w e are not in favor of hav ing any decent man ruined on the mere word of a rascal such as Ames. Before condemning Mr. Colfax, let his story be heard so much is granted even to conspicuous crimi nals. So much is allowed even to Tweed, whom we maintain what ever juries may say-to be a thief. The "Liberal Republican Democrat- papers would treat Mr. Colfax far worse than thev treat Tweed We are against that system, and we think that most fair-minded men agree with us."
