Tue opposition of the Fihdlat Jif
FSS80VI4K to the re election of Hon.
John Sherman, availed nothing, al
thongh its elaborate editorial of week
before last, may have assisted Sena
tor Gage in rendering himself ridicu
lous in the estimation of bis fellow
Republican Senitors. We are Inform
ed that in its opposition to llr. Sher
man, the Jeffeksovlik became the
mouthpiece of a few sore heads. It
did not represent the sentiments of
the masses of the Republicans of
Hancock county. Wyandot IUp.. ,
M. John Sherman allow 'Ir.
Pietro Cuneo to run the Upper San
dusky Post office, and we . bare no
fault to find with the aforesaid P. M.,
for caressing the hand that feeds
him. Upper Sandaeky is not quite
so large a place as New York, and
Cuneo finds ample time, aside from
his post office duties to write
few locals and copy ew editorials
from HarptJ Wetkly into the Repub
lican.' 'i.
The "sii" is an agreeable one to
Cuneo, and he evinces his satisfaction
by growling ferociously at every indi
cation of a change. Like many oth
ers who bold positions by the grace
of John Sherman, he teels that his
only recommendation for place is the
fact that he has the favor of that gen
tleman. Now, we wouldn't, for the
world be so cruel as to wish to dis
turb Cuneo in the enjoyment of his
post office but we shall sot on that
account,yield the privilege of express
ing our honest convictions, and we
claim for our opinions the virtue, at
least, that they are arrived at with
out me aid or official spectacle. Let
Mr. Cuneo enjoy to bis heart's content,
we tnrirt that follows fawning, but
when he presumes 'to criticise our
course, let him remember that he :

the prevailing moral eentfmenfc pro
nioiung cruelty tg-aamb Vanimtls
will shieldiia we are of tnoOpln
l"Lftit H fnllvaa well
with the sentiments of the Repub
licans of Hancock county as Mr.
P (ostoffice) Cuneo, and W6 venture
to suggest to him the propriety, of
con finning himself to the affairs of
bis own county, which he is supposed
to know something about Possibly,
in a small county like Wyandot, he
may pass for a very shrewd politi
cian, but when he attempts to spread
himself over more than one county
it becomes very thio."
As to Sena'or Gage, we are wil
ling to admit that he did very wrong
in failing to consult Mr. Cuneo in re
gard to the casting of his vote . for
Senator, but we feel assured that he
meant no slight to the Upper San
dusky P.M. Mr. Gige is not much
of a politician, and this is his first
term. When be gets to understand
the ropes he will doubtless consult
Cuneo upon all important measures,
We ssy this much in extenuation of
Mr. Gage's seeming disregard of the
feelings of Mr. Cuneo, for we feel
thit the Senator will feel very badly
when he learns that he has incurred
. Cuneo. displeasure.
The House apportionment bill, as
rep rted by the Senate Judiciary

inr U pr p ! by either party that is
not at once construed into a political
measure. The most important dia-
cuiwion took place in the Sena'e on
the 21st, on the Amnesty bill, ait pass
ed by the house Mr. Morton took
occasion to denounce the demand tor
universal amnmty as a "sickly senti
mentality . but declared his readiness
to vote for the bill as reported from
the House, but would not vote for it
with the exceptions stricken out. He
was followed by other Republicans in
lite saiue strain. It is now certain that
no universal amnesty can be reached
during the present session.
A deputation from the Anti-Slate
Trade Society called on Lord Gran

acknowledged the fact, but sid Eng

The war of ideas upon the tariff
question is one which cannot be hem
med in by party lines as parties are at
present constituted. The difficulty in
reforming our tariff system does not
lie in any serious opposition to a re
duction, but to the fact that scarcely
any two of the people's representa
tives have similar views either in re
gard to where the reduction (should
begin or where it should end. The
position of the Democratic party may
be described as a vaguely negative
opposition to the present system, and
if this were abolished i t ot o,we doubt
if they could frame another that
would be more satisfactory to them
selves. Their chief objection seems
to be that the Republicans have favor
ed it. In this respect the ground
they occupy is in perfect harmony
with their position upon nearly every
question that divides the parties, and
is peculiarly characteristic of that
party of grumblers. Upon this prin
ciple of general opposition the Demo
cratic party may be regarded as a
unit, and it may be remarked that
this party, such as it is, embraces
about all that is susceptible of colie
aion on the tariff problem. If we
turn to the Republican party, we find
it perfectly at sea on this question,
and we doubt if enough Republicans
can be found who perfectly agree
with regard to the matter to make a
respectable ward meeting. True
some call themselves Free Traders,
but even they admit the necessity of
a tariff for revenue, and there is a
great adversity of opinion among this
closes as to what amount of revenue
is needed, and upon what articles said
revenue tariff shall be levied. Again,
some call themselves by the general
name of Protectionists, but they, too,
disagree fearfully as to what industries
moat need protection, and also as to
the exact amount of protection need
The Ntw York Tribune says it
would be satisfied with Mr. Sherman's
proposed reduction of one-half ef the
duty on salt, if the free traders would
be satisfied therewith which may be
taken as evidence that the item of salt,
at leaBtiAwf f protected under the
present f ysten. But the Tribune adds
that such reduction will only encour
age them to insist that the duties on
salt shall be abolished altogether. It
prays, also, upon the same grounds.
for a continuation of the present du
ties on rice and on all woolen, cotton
and silken fabrics, and upon iron and
steel. Upon the matter of pig iron
it has a different, and, we must admit,
a better logic, which it sets forth as
Two years ago. Congress increased
the duty on steel rails and reduced
that on pig iron. In consequence,
pig iron is now dearer and steel rails
are cheaper than tlen. The $2 per
tun taken off the duty on pig iron has
been lost to the .treasury and gained
to the British iron-masters ; while the
growth of our iron-smelting, pre
viously so tapid, has been arrested
We are making at least thrice
many steel rails as when that tariff
was enacted, and steel rails are cheap
er than they then were ; we are mak
ing very little more pig iron than we
then did, and pig iron is dearer.
Shall not experience teach? Must
we be brayed in a mortar and then
not learn r
It is proper to add that the Tribune
is a rabid Protectionist, and where it
gives one good reason lor tne faun
that it confesses, it adds about three
that will not stand the test of serious
examination. Thus, while we recog
nize the weight of its argument in re
gard to the duty on pig iron, we can
not understand the philosophy which
refuses to reduce the dnty on the
other articles enumerated to a pioper
ratio, simply because some one would
be encouraged to insist that such
duty should be abolished altogether
Such logic bears the marks of lx-ing
The postal telegraph bill, now un
der consideration in the Senate, pro
poses the incorporation ot a company
to be known as the Postal Telegraph
Company, having headquarters in
Washington city, who shall contract
with the Postmaster-General for the
services required in the business of
that department, the capital stock to
be one million dollars. One feature
of the bill is that this company is
allowed to make special contracts with
railroads and newspapers, for tile-
graphic purposes, at rates net to ex
ceed fifty cents per hundred orris for
night, and seventy five cents for day
The following U a Lr ef ej noptLj cf
the bill : Section 1 eUaLIuhes postal
telegraph offices at all the postoffices
on telegraph lines and at all other
pf et offices where the gross receipts for
portage are 8500 a year, if w ithin ten
miles of the telegraph lines. Section
fixes uniform rates for equal dis
tances; 25 cents between offices not
over two hundred and fifty miles
put : 0 cents between offices over
two hundred and fifty miles apart and
un(er five hundred miles ; night rates
25 cents for one thousand miles. The
rates are to be refunded for delays or
mistakes in transmission Section 3
provides for pre-payroent by stamps,
and for the destruction of all tele
grams within one mcnth. Section 4
fixes the press rates for each one
hundred words of special dispatches
at fifty cents by night and seventy five
cents by day. It also fixes the rate
for press associations, and tcr private
wires for newspapers. Section C de
fines the duties ot the fourth assistant
postmaster general over thetelegraph
lines. Section seven authorizes the
oetmaster general to contract for the
trarsiuistdon of telegrams at the above
rates with parties w ho will turnith and
ojk rate the necessary line of telegraph
Section 8 contains provisions against
tampering with telegrams, and makes
telegrams privileged communica ions
as privata letters. Section 9 author
izes the poetiuaster general to reduce
the rates n a manner therein prescrib
ed. Sec ion 10 incorporates a postal
telegraph company for the x;rforiu-
ance of the oblal telegraph set vice
on behalf of the postmaster general.
Set-lion 1 1 and 1 2 authorize the com
pany to buy the existing lines, and
obliges it to purchase all such lines, if
reqnired by the owner thereof, at an
appointed value It fixes the capital
stock at an amount not exceeding the
last cost of its lines. Section 13 au-
tboi izes the company to open offices
whenever the wants of business may
require, section 14 authorizes Con
grew to purchase lines at any time, at
an appraited value. Section 15 re
serves to Congress the rigdt to alter
or amend the act. j
The Ways and Means Committee
have submitted tluir repirt to Con
gress called for by the teJtlu ion re
centiy passed by that body, the Pre
amble of which charged that Secre
tary Boutwell hal exceeded the lim
its of the law in placing the loan up
on the market in that he thereby in
creased the bonded debt o' the Uni
ted Sta'-es, contrary to an express
condition of the law under which
the bonds were to be negotiated.
Upon this thargethe Committee re
port as follows:
It appears that the Secretary can
not negotiate the bonds authorized
by this act for the sole purpose of
redeemma the outstanding indebted
nets of the United States, known as
five-twenty bonds, and it n express
ly provided in th'S fount section,
that he may lawfully apply to such
purpose of redemption such moneys
in the Treasury as "may be derive!
from the sale ot eny of the bondf , the
issue ot which is provided in this act "
It is obviom that in order to make
this application, he must first nrgot
ate the new bonds lie oa not
take up lhe ell londa with h pro
ceed ot the new bonds unlt-rs he has
eold the new bonds, without any pro
cess, but while the act of obtioing
sndsppljing the proceed i going
on, he will io cease the peblic debt
to the amount of the bonds he first
sells, in order to obtain the proceeds
by which this provision of law can
be carried out without involving
such a temporary increase of public
debt, and, therefore, are ot the op i
ion thet the clause acdliw, which it
is alleged the Secretary has, ii so
doing, violated, must be so construed
as to permit the carrj ing out of the
statute in this regard. No one can
doubt that this salutary provision of
the law, whicli.it is alleged, the Sec
retary Ixte violated, was intended to
tike away from him lhe power of ap
propriating the proceeds of any of
the bonds authorized by this statute
to any other purpose than that of re
funding l!ie public debt ; so that when
the transection wea completed, the
public would be assured that the
dibt of the nation had not thereby
been iacieased. It had the double
object of limiting the power t the
Secretary in ihis regard, and
strengthening the public cirdit, and
was apparent to the world that ill
offering these r"t6uaa' we were
not bom bers, and ihat, unthe other
Hand, our policy and prosperity hud
so strengthened cur credit that we
were to soon after the creation of our
new indebtedness, enabled to enter
uroa the process of refunding, with
out increasing, the same at a ii.uc'j
less rate of interest. In the opinion
of the committee this clause ot the
sUtute has i o other scope and flVct
and wi s iiotinU ndc-d to embarrass or
cripple the efforts of the Secretary to
carry cut every provision of the
law, which e imply provided tint he
should first negotiate tLe new loan,
and after having done thtt, should,
with its proceed, redeem a corres
ponding amount of the outstanding
indebtedness of the United States
The report fully vindicates
course of Secie'.ary Boutwell.

In the Senate, bills wera introduced
to amend section 7 of the liq'ior law,
and to increa.-c the pay of judges and

The New Orleans disturbance
threatened to assume a most danger
ous phase a few days since. Ou Sunday
last, Carter, leader of what has been
known as the Custom House faet:on,
issued a proclamation invi ing all
citizens to arm, and present them
selves at a given time and place on
Monday, where they would be form
ed into a jmse for the purpose of re
jecting tne Warmoutliites from the
Mechanics' B ji!ding,and reseating the
Legislature as it was but ore the taou
blecommencud. This was a veritable
declaration of war, and no doubt such
would have been the result had it not
been for the limu'y interference of the
Federal Government. The President,
being apprised of U'e threatening
state of aflors, telegraphed Gen. Em
o y, in command in the city, to use
the troops under hi emmand to pre
vent a collision. These instructions
had the effect to cool the Carter blood
to some extent, and no .1 ni.instration
was made. A Congrecsional commit
tee is now on its way to investigate
the matter, and Ihi1i parties seem
willing to stay proeee.ling-i until their
report is made. There U a prospect
ot some rich developmeots, and it is
to be hoped that the end of the chaos
and niisiule, which has prevailed in
Louisiana, is near its end.

TODEDO, O., January 23, 1872.
Ed. FiKDLiT Jspr.: Dear Sir
I inclose to you the following from
the Toledo Commercial, tearing you
might not ete it I cannot find out
moie than is expressed in this article.
The editor could only say that the
parties below seemed to be in earnest.
As to Toledo people, they are short
of money, and they are now engaged
in a great many railroad enterprises,
& you know, which may lie a draw
back, so far as they are concerned.
TLi3 will, I think, be only tempora
ry. I think that ia the minds of To
ledoans the railroad interest stands
now on a new basis. Business men
seem to me to be convinced of the
necessity of more communications,
and are giving credence and aid with
willingness, when but a few years
ago, they could scarcely ba begged
into a hearing. How they would
look on this enterprise I do not
knox, but a trial would not bs amiss.
At all events Bowling Green, Fi 1 1
lay, Kenton, and all the joints below
are deeply interested and ou:Ut to
raise heaven and earth to effect the
Construction or this road. It seems
like a feasible route and offers Kind
Uy excellent advantages,
They ought to at once pull tngi 1 1

Tax Massachusetts School Ship, a
reiormatory vessel, to which for some
years juvenile culprits have been sent,
has failed as an experiment, not with
standing the most kindly nureinc by
the State and by private philantho
pista. Even J udge Thomas Russell,
Collector of the Port of Boston, who
has been always warmly interested in
the ship, admitted in his evidence be
fore the Legh-lative Committee that
the plan could not be made useful and
effective. He said that our American
foreign commerce had so decreased
that it no longer crested any demand
for boys, or only a limited one It
was hardly worth while, he thought.
to be at the expense and trouble of
training laus tor the sea, it most ot
them, alter all, were to go into oecu
pationa on land. Already there is a
surplus of sailors in our ports; if boys
are shipped on coasters, they pass out
of the jurisdiction of the State ; and
if they are sent out in whalers, they
usually desert on the first opportunity.
Last year, out of 200 boys discharged,
only 29 were shipped. Then it was
oomplained that the Judges have been
in the habit of sending only the worst
tojs to the ship, many of whom
should have been put into ths House
of Correction. Nor does the life on
board seem to be of a character favor
able to reform. Ths boys are crowd
ed together ; anything like a separate
system upon a general scale is impos
si ble ; and the worst soon bring down
to their own level the least degraded ;

Tub Chicago Tribune states : The
facts in regard to the amount of in
surance involved in the great fire in
this eity, and the amounts paid, may
be stated ia round figures as follows :
Total insurance lost, nearly 990,000,-
000 Amount paid by solvent com
panies, something over 25,000,000.
Amount paid by insolvent companies,
about 1 0,000,000. The amount that
will remain unpaid will be over 50,
000,000. Five cities owed Chicago
aggregate of about 26000,000 for
insurance losses, viz; New York
14,000,000, Hartford 95,000,000,
San Francisco 3,000.000, Boston
2,750, Providence 2,000,000. In
proportion to capital invested the
heaviest losers were of course the
Chicago companies, next were the
Hartford companies, and next the San
Francisco companies. The receivers
of the Atlantic and Manhattan Insur
ance Companies of New York, render
ed insolvent by the fire, have filed
their official report of the settlement
of the affairs of these companies with
the Supreme Court of the State oi
New ork. The total assets report
ed by the receiver of the Atlantio
were 9449,810, and the expenses ot
the receivership wera 3,431. The
total assets reported by the Manhat
tan were l,49a,991, and the expenses
of the receivership 8,247.
Tub Wation, which baa never been
an enthusiastic supporter of the Grant
administration, is forced to admit that
nothing which the President has done
can be made to form any strong argu
ment in favor ot the one term princi
ple, and that alter all, the people are
the best judges as to whether a rresi
dent ought to be re-elected or not.
the course of its remarks the JVa
ttMsays: "We confess ourselves that we do
not consider General Grant's adminis
tratioa of any particular value as a
proof of the importance of any such
change, but it is highly valuable as
illustration ot the desirableness of
civil service reform. Nobody can call
him a dangerous man or a designing
man Nay, we believe he entered
the office meaning well, and that his
impulses all carry him in the right
direction, and it would be unlair to
deny that his administration baa sev
eral solid claims on the popular grati
tude." It is, ot course, a very easy thing to
say in general terras that President
brant is a failure, but when men come
specify what his actual flenses
ave been, the record is surprisingly
meager, rerlect men are not easy to
nod every day, and, on the whole.
General Grant's defamers would find
hard to convince the people that
the country baa not been fortunate m
