AfoUnr«a and the Business Outlook.
If we were to accept on their face 'the
Statistics of the nicrciiutilc failures of the
year just closed which are reported by
tbe commercial agencies, and compare
them with the failures of the previous
.year, tlie conclusion would be that the
country has not yet suffered tbe worst
-effects of the pauic of 1872. The total
'number of failures reported for the year
1876 is 9,003, with aggregate liabilities
'•mounting to $191,117,780, and average
^liabilities of $21,030 In 1875 there were
•only 7,740 failures, but tbe average lia
bilities were $25,900 in 1874, the totul
failures were 5,880, and the average lia
'bilities $36,627. It will be noticcd that,
while the number of failures has increas
•ed steadily since 1873, the average liabil
ities iiavc decreased. This may be ex
•plained in two or three ways. There are
••till Urge numbers of firms doing busi
ness who were too seriously affected by
the panic and shrinkage in prices to war
Taut tbeir continuation, and their affairs
'must be wound up sooner or later but
Lbu firms that were spread out the most
'succumbed aomc lime since, while those
that have held on have reduced their lia
'bilities. Hence, while the actual number
Of failures has increased, the amount of
4labiiltles which the failures represent
has been materially reduced. The facil

"thi increase in numbers. It is notorious
that the Bankrupt daw and the general
practice thereunder liavo encouraged
^fraudulent failures in large numbers and
•served as a means to enable many debtor*
*o compromise obligations and settle with
creditors when they were abie to pay
dollar for dollar.
The showing for thi past year contains
anany encouraging features for the pros
pective business of the United States.
Tbe best attainable statistics show the
failures in Canada duriug the year to
have bee^oue out of every thirty-two
Inu doing business, and average liiv
'Mllties -of -#14,7®!, while •the 'failures
•of the Uuited States 'are oniy 1 In every
•48, or aboat half as many in proportion.
The failukcsln England in 1875 were 1 in
every 80 Blum, which indicates that the
depression has been more serious across
'the water than among us. Iu the United
States there is a great difl'crence in the
-amount of failures reported from differ
ent sections. Thus in New Seel and
States, the failures were 1 In 99, with nv
trage liabilities of (28,638 -in-the Middle
States they were 1 In 37, with average
liabilities of $24,600 While in the Wes
tern States the failures were only 1 in 73,
or nearly one-third less, with average lia
-billties of only $10,848, or nearly one-half
less. There could Scarcely be a better
cvi-ence of tbe superior resources of tbe
'Western States, which 1* explained main
ly by,tbe fact that their production is of
the Mud which tbe world demands and
must have in hard time* as well as goud
times.
The comparative stattistics really pre
vent a promising outlook, for the current
year, which will be materially brightened
by the disappearance of the politkMl
troubles. •. Notwithstanding tlie serious

the fashion with some of the bell-wethers
of the flock of Washington correspon
dents (who follow their leaders,of course)
is too transparently silly and altogether
stupid to require refutation. Whatever
the result may be, there are tens of thous
ands among the most Intelligent citizens
of the country—men who have proved
their devotion by their sacrifice*—who
regard the proposed measure aa unw ar
retted by law or expediency, and who
are convinced beyond a doubt, tliil had
there been a strict compliance with the
letter and spirit of the constitution und
the laws, the overwhelming election of
R. B. Hayes would have beaa acknowl
edged everywhere within twenty-four
hours after the close of the polls oh the
evening of the 7th of November, and
that tbe proposed compromise is a con
cession to the spirit of murder and out
rage so rampant in tbe South, and of
fraud aiud corrupt bargain* in inaay
other communities. A more apt and con
vincing demonstration of that free spirit
has not been given in House or Senate
for some years, than that volunteered by
Senator Bogy ou Friday, iu bis defeuse
of tbe White League assassins of Louisi
ana. His less unscrupulous political
fr ends —men with hearts of flesh quick
to respond to the cry of tortured hu
manity, notwithstanding their political
incongruous alliances, and who have
with Bhame admitted the truth of what
Bogy stolidly denied appeared shocked
and mortified that a United States Sena

If not killed outright have been maimed

party that struck the manacles from their
limbs and invested them with the rights
and privileges of men.
How many Democratic newspapers
which were willingly misled -by the un
scrupulous members of the investigating
committe into a professed belief of Sec
retary Robeson's guilt, will publish, and
call attention to, their report exonerating
him? The couteuiptible triek of refer
ring the testimony to tbe Judiciaiy Com
niittce because tliry couldn't decide (so
they said) whether it was sufficient to
warrant his impeachment, has been made
to serve its campaign purpose. Except
the President, an man connected with
his administration has been more persist
ently dogged and misrepresented. A
mountain of tbe most fillby vltn|erations
wasn't apparent, with most of tliete or
gans the slightest conccrn to ascertain
the truth or falsity of tbe charges by
which lie was assailed. At this late day
It is thought proper to repcrt that there
are uo grounds for impeachment. Could
political partizanship and depravity go
farther It may bo safely conjectured
th.it Mr. Hewitt will willingly allow his
share iu Postmasters James' investigation
to be expunged from the record. He suc
ceeded in making a decided sensation on
the most shallow foundation. Tbe com
mittee designated to investigate his
charges, or rather insinuations, against
the New York Post Office, with Cox at
its'head, had reported them as "baseless"
and warmly commend the methods of the
officials who are in charge of its conduct.
The Eo*ning 8tar'reporU that prelim
inary action has been taken looking to
the incorporation of a company for build
ing a mammoth hotel here to cost be
tween $1,000,000 and $2,000,000. The
hotels already in operation, here, amply
provide for the wants of tbe traveling
public But should our political compli
cations be happily adjusted, and the pre
dicted revival of business follow, such
an enterprise would no doubt soon prove
a wise investment. Than have been
quite a number of new hotels erected
here since tbe war, and they all appear
to have prospered.
The weather of the past week justifies
the belief that we Cave experienced the
most severe part of thi1 Winter. Several
heavy rains have so neurly cleared tl e
Potomac of ice, (bnt its navigation has
been resumed, lestoring busUess some
what, and ameliorating our sufferings
from the oyster famine.

Mr. Wluttier begins tbe February issue
of the Atlantic Monthly with a slippage
ballad, called "The Witch of WenUam,"
a charmioc poem in his best vein. Tbe
same number has a short poem, "A Dutch
Picture," by Mr. Longfellow, and one by
Edmund C. Stedman. A timely and
charicteristiu poeni, bv Dr. Holmes, on
the Presidential question—' 'How Not to

many fresh and nmusing anecdotes of
animal sagacity, and argues for a better

"The Political Condition of South Caro
lina," by a South Carolinian, is an article
of great and immediate interest, and i»
the most comprehensive aud impartial
stale incut of the Southern situation which
li# yet appeared. The source Troiu
which It comes, and the remarkable can
dor and freedom from party bias of the
Writer, will ensure it a wide reading and
the most thoughtful consideration. Mrs.
Kvmhle's chapter of "'Old Woman's Gos
sip" is unu-u illy good thit month, and
Henry James, Jr.'s njvel, "The Aineii
cu," draws near to its climax. Mr How
ells enlivens the magazine still further
with the first act of a new comedy-ro
lniince entitled "'Out of the Question," to
be finished in two more parts. Besides
these contributions, we find a readable
account of "Christmas Eve in a Sicilian
Abbey," by Lnigi Monti, lately American
Consul at Palermo. Edgar Fawcett and
Mrs. Piatt contribute poems, and there is
a striking anonymous poem, entitled"The
Old Giave." The new department. "The
Contributors' Club,'1 is full of clever
things. After that there is a "Sunset
Song," bv Celia Tbaxtcr, set to musla by
Vulius Eiclibcrg. There is an unusual
number of book reviews, and the editorial
comments on "Art" and "Musio" are also
well worth reading.
