I will lir-t give soii;eHttciiti(in to-.!i:e of Ms bold assert ions: 1. He says it has not b e:i ,'u's inten tion to prove aiivtiiing, pro or con, r-hi tive to feet washing, r-t ratine, in.le-- I. that lie would propose to write a serifs of Reticles and have them published in a newnpiiper, especially on a controverted theological subject, without intending to prove something. If he does i,ot want to prove anything, why nppenl to the Book? I cannot thhink "P." can make our readers believe this asseition. 2. He charges me with brngingor hav ing writteu in a windy bragadoc ia sl vie. I will leave our readers to judge as to the style of my writing. I wonder if my friend remembers who it was that went to one of his near neighbors avid called their attention to an article writ ten by some one over the signature of "Philip, B under the caption of "Feet Washing," and spoke of it as an "able production? Was there anything in this which has the appearance of a braga- docia style? 3. He continues to assert that feet washing existed as a custom from Abra ham to Christ. That it was and still is, a custom for individuals to wash their own feet, I have never denyed, but I do most positively deny that it has ever been the custom (habitual practice) for the host or their servants to wash the feet of their guests. Jesus did not wash his disciples feet in conformity with an old Jewish custom. I want 4 his dis tinctly understood. When we see the proof that Christ did wash their feet merely as a custom and a family cus tom, we will yield the point, but we must have something more than asser tions, or we shall continue to deny it even in the face of "P's." Dare you deny it? 4. I am sorry to hear P. assert what he and all others who are acquainted with the matter knows to be incorrect, that is, that our practice of washing the Saints feet as a church ordinance insti tuted by the Saviour, will not stand the light of Gospel truth. He knows very well that we boldly preach and practice it wherever Churches of God are found. No one but himself could ever think that I had attempted to hide anything touching our faith and practice during this discussion. As he has taken the lead in the discussion of this question, all I have attempted to do was to follow him and reply. I am fully persuaded that he has not pursued the same course he would have done if no one had tunde a reply. I am aware there is a distinc tion made by theological writers of tho highest authority between positive and moral duties. In moral duties we can see the reason why they are com man Jed , because they are suited to our nature, and to the relations which we sustain to the Author of our being and to others around us. Positive duties rest upon the express will of the law giver. We are not able to observe the rea-on of their performance previous to their en actment. We now propose to -give the essential elements of a divine monu mental institution. Their essential ele ments are: 1. Divine institution, i. e. a law re quiring a certain thing to be done, and thus making it obligatory upon its. 2. Have recognized subjects. 3. Have corporeal elements, that is, something material, the "presence of which is necessary in order that the command be obeyed thus,water,bread, wine, etc. 4. Formal observance a law requir ing not a moral act, which hits many forms, but one which requires a particu lar act to be performed aud not a moral. 5. Have a design, i. e. it must repre sent something. 6. It must be performed, not for its own sake, but for the sake or that whi-h it represents. 7. Perpetuity and universality so a-s to extend it universally in tim? aud place in the church. That the ordinance of washing the Saints feet has in it the essential elements of a divine aud mon umental institution, can be clearly dein onstrated. Xow, as P. admits that he is always ready to practice what Jesus commands, aud to wash the Disciples feet as He did it, but thinks it should be practised iu private and, not in the public us sembly, we will wait aud see whether he can prove his position. We practice feet washing not to cleanse the feet of filth, but because Jesus has given us the example and command to do it. Does "P." meet with the disciples in a public assembly shortly after they have eaten a hearty meal at home, and administer to them the bread and wine when they are not hungry? If so, is he not about as inconsistent as those who wash the disciples feet when they may have washed them before coming to the House of God? Was not the Lord's Supper instituted in just as private a manner as feet washing SINCERITY. Johs Scsdat, an old Iudian Chief, and a well known Methodist' missionary among his own people, Las just died, at the age of eighty years. He begin his missionary work over forty years ago. Daring twenty-five of these years he labored among his own tribe the Ojib ways. He once visited Great Britain in tbe iuterest of Methodist missions in Canada, where he attracted considerable attention, and was presented to the Queen. A Methodist minister of the Church South recently visited the Hon. A. H. Stephens at his home in Crawfordsville, Ga. He found him reading a Sunday School book and perfectly resigned, and quietly awaiting his end. Though not a Methodist, Mr. Stephens has given a lot and several hundred dollars to that church, and they have built a neat house of worship near his residence. . A correspondent of the National Baptist, of Philadelphia, tells a roman tic story of a young man named Ran dall, formerly a resident of New York, who wa captured in Syria by the Bedouins, married a Sheik's daughter, and has converted her and others of the tribe to the Christian faith.

[From the Cincinnati Gazette ] Some one may say there are no fi oiu. True iu one seuse,. but there have been lessons, aud those of no small import ance. In the case of choosing a Presi dent, and by necessity changing the uu n, if not the policy of the government, it is very important that the people of the country should know of what material, and of what spirit aud purpose Ihe great parties which contend for power, are composed. These parties comprise the people it is true, but it is only a small part of them such as Congress and State officers, and ambi tions politicians who assume to guide and state the principles of parties. This is emphatic-lily true of Congress. Since the year J 719 to that of 1824, a consider able portion of our history the whole of political business was settled by a Congressional caucus. The only deprrt- ure since from the caucus system is in the Convention for the nomination of President. The business of Congress is still, in all important, directed by the caucus, and this from the necessity, as well as convenience, of concentrated action. The oeaiier was nominated Dy caucus; the taiiing up and the termina tion of certain subjects are directed by caucus; We mention this to show that Congress is the central body in which begins and is shaped the great subjects of political section and discussion. This is very proper, because it is the direct rep resentative of both people and States. The people are indeed the supreme court of appeals, but it is proper and convenient that the political attorneys should bring their cases before this su preme tribuual. Well, such being the fact, let us see what Congress, especially the House of Representatives, is prepar ing for us. The house came fresh from tbe people, The majority were elected not merely by Democrats, but also by disaffected Republicans. In one word, it represents the feeling that there was something to reform, something to econ omize, sola": faults aud evils to be cor rected. Xow, let us see how the House represent that feeling, and what they tiud to correct. It has been in session nearly two mouths. It his held its cau cuses. It has appointed its committees. it has attetuped to shape policy, and it has utterly tailed. In the mode and manner of this failure there are some reat lessons. There is a powerful, though silent, appeal to the people against putting the Democratic party in power. First, this session of Congress (no matter what may come,) has demon strated the incapacity of that party to successfully carry on government. On the floor of the House are Randall, Wood, Cox, Kerr, and teveral ether men, who are noted leaders of the Dem i cratic party, with a powerful majority of the House behind them, aud, one would suppose, capable of both shaping and acting on public business with suc cess. What is the result ? With a few honorable exceptions it has exhibited a sympathy with reliels, a weakness in tal ent, aud an ignorance of public affairs. Let us take some of the facts. Mr. Kerr, the Speaker, was well spoken of as a man atd a statesman. He was elected. What did he? The first great work was the appointment of the committees. In stead of shaping the committees with regard to their capacity for public busi ness, he shaped them iu reference to their services to himself (such as Morri son), and lo the Presidential candidates. They were such that almost the whole newspaper press ridiculed them, and the the worst of it was the ridicule was well deserved. Morrison, Wiiitehouse, aud others, in ptaces where statesmen of all parties had served, were enough to make a je.-t or point a sarcasm. Then camo the introduction of some important res olutions and bills concerning Louisana, amuesty, etc. In the course of these proceedings the Democrats, who had seventy majority, were signally defeated. The point of this is not in the result, but in the evident, palpable fact that the Democratic party in the House wanted capacity. It was incompetent to the practical conduct of parliamentary af fairs. They either had not the men, or did not send them, who were capable of conducting the business of the country. It was not want of experience, but want of capaci;y. This state of fact, too, not from the waut of capable niea iu the party, but from want of the moral pow er to prefer aud elect them. What, then, can be expected from the administration of a party which makes such a denion st ration before the Nation? Let us turn now to another fact the views of the House on reforn. We have seen that Whitehouse is chairman of some c jmmittee on reform. Such an ap pointment was the most perfect satire which the Speaker could have made. This man is the representative of Duchess and Columbia counties, X. Y., and was notoriously elected by corruption. In the last election (1SC5) it gave 4,000 Re publican majority. Comment on this is unnecessary. But let us see what they are trying by way of economy. They have proposed or will through the committee to reduce the pay of the professors at West Point, theeadeU.and of Second Lieutenants. This is the most perfeet example of the old line, "Parturiunt montes nascetur ridiculns mus," which has ever heen exhibited in cur annals. The mountain was in labor and lias brought forth a ridiculouse mouse! Ridiculous in every way. In the first place, the army and navy ought not to be the subject of tfij potiticaJ- experi ments. Ia the next place, the poor pro fessors at West Point are the very last oiBcers of the army who ought to be reduced. They are performing most responsible duties to the country at very moderate salaries, when they could get more iu civil life. Three or four years ago, one of the professors thought he would make something for himself, and an insurance company appointed him actuary at a salary thousands of dollars greater than he got at West Point. With what conscience can a member of Cong ress who serves ouly half a year at tJo.OOO vote to reduce the salaries of these professors working for half that? See again the same aristocratic and sel fish tendency in the proposal to cut down Second Lieutenants, when it is the high officers and the staff of the army which get the high and unnecessaiy emolu ments. If the chairman of the Military Committee desires to economize in the army, let him begin with our large and expensive staff. Again, our army etu not be reduced with safety to our frontier. Does Cong ress know that the General commanding he Department of Texas asked addition al forces from the War Department, and they could not be had? Do they not know that the Mexican Government is not able to restrain their own marauders along the Rio Grande, and that, there fore, we must defend that whole line of frontier. The coast of California must have a part of the artillery to garrison its ports. The same is true of the Atlan tic and of the Indian frontier. If we reduce the army we must leave thous ands of frontier people exposed to the savages and the Mexicans, besides leav ing all our fortresses unmanned, to the contempt of foreign natiops. Thirdly, we come to the spirit which animates a part, if not the whole of the Democratic majority. That spirit is 6imply a revival of the rebellion, or of the principles on which the rebellion was founded. Mr. Hill's speech defending tbe hor rors of Andersonville was atrocious. It has no rival in the annals of modern civilization. We have had party spirit at the highest; we have had speeches sympathizing with England and Mexico when they were at war with us; we have had the wildest and most terrible doc trines advocated, but never before have we had a member of Congress in his place defending barbarisms worse than those of Algiers, and cruel as the tor ments of Indian warfare. In the midst of this horrid and disgraceful exhibition, we had Mr. Cox trying to turn it off with the jokes of the King's jester. After the tragedy and the farce, we had a purely didactic performance from Mr. Tucker, of Virginia. This was a parrot repetition of the resolutions of "98 and the South Carolina session. It was so disgraceful (o the intellect, as well as the popularity, of the Democratic party, that Mr. Hoi man, the leading Democrat of Indiana, bad to rebake it, and it was done very effectually. The party owes Mr. Holman much more than it thinks, for if it was no: for him and a few like him, it would go headlong over the precipice to political destruction. The lessons of this Congress, which we have now briefly reviewed, are very obvious. It is an incapacity for busi ness and a want of statesmanship, which are painfully obvious to the whole coun try. There are, doubtless, some changes and reforms which might be made. In them, the Republicans should they appear to be real will cheerfully con cur. Both parties are on their good behavior. Neither of them can afford now to play off any more political tricks. Let them both aim at the general wel fare. One thing is pretty obvious, that the Democrats must shake off such lead ers as Hill, Tucker, and Lamar, unless they want to meet a total defeat. The country is not ready for another rebel lion, nor for the defense of a rebellion. It will not allow the play of "High Life Below Stars" ly the traitors of a yet E. D. M. JANUARY 24, 1875. MOUND-BUILDERS' RELICS FOR THE CENTENNIAL EXHIBITION. Yesterday a most valuable and inter esting collection of ancient pottery and human bones, from mounds iu South east Missouri, was received at the Cen nial office, No. 404 Walnut street. The specimens are nearly one hundred in number, and consist mostly of eating, drinking and cooking vessels, very queer in shape and curious in their ornamen tation. Some have inscriptions upon them, but a second Champollion might be required to make sense of these in scriptions. Some of these bones indi cate that "there were giants in those days, "and the skulls are of a thickness to bid defiance to anything less forcible than a minie-balL The explorer of these wonderful mounds says the skele ton seems to indicate the distinction of sex, the larger skeletons having on each side of the head au eating and a drink ing vessel, while the smaller ones, an swering to the women, were honored with nothing better than a small pot or stewpan Those American Pharaohs had evidently a very poor notion of woman's rights. Among those persons who curiously inspected these archte.t logical wonders was Isaac Cook, Esq., of the American Wine Company, and upon his own motion the experiment was tried of drinking imperial from one of the ancient cups that had been buried for ages. The company hobnobbed with these ancient inhabitants, conclud ing that the wine was not injured by being qualified from an antediluvian cup.

The Important Discoveries Lieutenant Cameron Has Made. The letters of Lieut. Cameron, which were read before tbe Royal Geograph ical Society on the 16th insL, were not so clear and intelligible as could be wished, but they are certainly of great interest. As is well known, it was Cam eron's original intention to descend the Lualaba to the coast. When, however, he arrived at Xyangwe, the most north ly point reached by Livingstone, he was unable to procure canoes, and was forced to abandon his intended route. He thereupon proceeded, first, in a southerly direction, and for a part of the way through the valley of the Lo maiue, until he reached the head waters Zambeze, in longitude 23 deg., latitude 11 deg., and from thence he marched to the west coast of Benguela, by way of Bihe, following the general direction of Magyar's route, as it was suggested by these columns that he would probably do. The entire distance traveled by Cameron on foot is estimated at 2,953 miles, and the number and accuracy of bis astronomical observations, taken, as they were, in the most difficult circum stances, have amazed his scientific coun trymen. The geographical discoveries made in the course of this unequaled march are of very great importance. Cameron found that the Lualaba at Nyangwe flowed in a westerly instead of a north erly direction, as reported by Living stone, and that its height above the sea is only 1,400 feet. As this is 923 feet below the level of the Albert Lake, and 500 feet below the level of the Nile at Gondokoro, there is no longer any pos sibility that the Lualaba flows into the Albert Lake, or has any connecton whatever with the Nile. Its ideutity with the Congo has, therefore, been proved by Cameron's surveying instru ments as conclusively as it could have been had he descended the river to its mouth a journey which would leally have been of less value to geographers than that which he actually made. Cameron's explorations west of Liv ingstone's Lualaba have rendered it probable that the Lomame flows from Livingstone's conjectural Lake Lincoln, but have overthrown the theory that it is the West Lulaba, discovered by the Pombeiros, precisely where they asserted that they crossed it, and he moreover ascertained that it is larger and more important than Livingstone's Lualaba. The latter's imaginative map mast, therefore, be again revised. The Lua laba of the Pomberios must no longer be confounded with the Louiauie, and it must be regarded as the true Lualaba or Upper Congo, of which Livingstone's smaller Lualaba is a tributary. Of course this is not very intelligible except to those who have Livingstone's map be fore them, but it is important, not only as a contribution to African geography, but also as a new confirmation of the value of the early Portuguese explora tions, which have been so arbitrarily discredited, and unjustly ridiculed by English geographers. Another discovery of remarkable in terest made by Cameron is that of Lake Mohrya, on which he found lake villages such as those which existed in Switzer land prior to historic times. Hitherto our knowledge of the ancient lake dwellers has been to a great extent con jectural. It has heen imagined that ages had passed away since the last lake dwelling sank out of sight and memory. But here in the heart of Africa is found a people whose habits are, no doubt, identical with those of the Swiss lake dwellers. It is the dis covery of a lost page of human history, and its value to anthropologists can not be overestimated. The fact that the sources of the Congo and Zambeze are so near to one another that their waters mingle in the rainy season, is made the occasion of a rather visionary project by Lieut. Cameron. He asserts that a canal twenty miles long, cut through a level plain, would connect the two great rivers and open a highway for commerce through the cen ter of Africa, from tbe Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. He intimates that a com pany with a capital of from one to two million pounds could cut this canal, aud "have Africa open in about threeyears. It is quite possible that it would not be a difficult matter to connect the two rivers in the manner proposed. It would still, however, be necessary to make the cataracts of the Congo and the Zambeze passable by vessels a task which the present generation would hardly venture to undertake. It would doubtless be less difficult to connect the head waters of h Missouri and Colum bia rivers, which i.re but three miles apart ; but there is hardly money enough in the whole Unired States to pay the cost of tendering uch a water route across the American Continent navi gable. Much as Cameron has accomplished, he has still left something for Stanley and other explorers to do. He does not appear to have personally verified his assertion that Tanganyika discharges itself through the Lukuga into the Lua laba. Til's vexed problem of the outlet of this lake is, therefore, still to be finally solved. Ne w York Times. Whkrs Doks it all Comk From? Piuts and quarts of filthy Catarrh dis charges.

A lady correspondent of the Cleveland Herald, who was present during the Amnesty debate in tbe Honse; writes a very interesting letter, from whioh we extract as follows: Go-I bless our Garfield! His words were as goads and as fiery nails driven by the great Master of Assemblies. His face was radiant, and his manner was the perfection of courtesy toward every member of the House; while his truths were perfectly scathing. Old Congress men said it was tbe greatest speech, thus far, in all Mr. Garfield's Congres sional career. Mr. Monroe wheeled about in his chair, and his fraternal face was turned towards the orator, all aglow with a colleague's pride. It was beauti ful to see. Hon. C. B. Farwell, mem ber from Chicago, told me that the "voice in the rear5 during our war time, was one of the finest points he ever heard made upon the floor of Congress. Perhaps the interest culminated when Mr. Pratt, of Xew York, begged leave to interrapt Mr. Garfield, and read, with a steady voice, but an eager, ire'aiulous hand, the telegram from the late Com mandment at Elmira, so completely and in full detail refuting Mr. Hill's infa mous charge of cruelty towards rebel prisoners there confined; and when his colleague on the Democratic side, Mr. Walker, representing the district of El mira, solemnly and amid breathless si lence rose and corroborated every word of the denial. If one of the rebel dead there entombed, and whose graves are humanely tended by our Government, could have arisen in bis mouldering cements, and added his ghostly testimo ny to the truth of the telegram, the effect could haidly have been more startling. It was so utterly unexpected from a Democrat, and gave us so heart some a gleam of true manhood emerging above party lash. Then with undimin ished interest our thoughts returned to allow the masterly peroration of General Garfield, in which he thanked God for peace, and for the fact that in the awful flame of war slavery had been burned to death. At bis close, you should have seen the silent, heartfelt greetings of his comrades who sat all around him the little knot of Republican leaders, grouped together for better considera tion of the whole. It was Solomon's own sentiment. 'Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer," transla ted into the deeper, graver sign-language of our Saxon blood. And when the ex quisite flowers were brought in, a trib ute from the few the very few maimed soldiers whom indignant public senti ment had thus far forced the Democratic majority to exempt from the execution er's axe, it was like a strain of exquisite, plaintive music, mingling with drum beat cannon roar. Pardon me if I con fess to you that my eyes were full of womanish tears as I looked at the mute offering. Even thus had these brave men plucked with unspafing hand their life's young, fragrant flower, and laid it upon the altar of our common country. And w9 accepted the costly offering! Wherewith can we recompense them for such a sacrifice as theirs! I know these men pleasantly and well, both the many who have been discharged and the few who remain ; and I have often lingered in the corridors where I was wont to see them sit, faithful, courteous sentinels at the frequent gallery doors, and have talked with them about their wives and little children, and have heard their sim ple, valorous story of their lives this halting, empty-sleeved brigade with the thought of Mrs. Brownings' Court Lady wellingand throbbing in my heart. You remember how she went into the hospital of Milan after the war which made Italy free, and passed from couch to couch among the wounded men, "Kneeling 'O, more than mv brother, How can I thank thee for all.' " Knowing them as I do, and reveren cing so profoundly their blood won "cross of the legion of honor," I can not express to yon the rage and shame with which 1 have seen a part of their number driven out from these sacred council halls of a Government wbich they have shed their precious tide of life to save. Are you not glad that our good President has pledged himself to Jo what can be done to recompense them for such insult and outrage? "The deep damnation of their taking off1 he can not mitigate, nor can he give them places quite so good as these that is, so well adapted to their maimed condition, for these places iu the Capitol building are much easier than Department clerk ships, and are iu general more lucrative than any such which a maimed man could fill. Iut he has a brother's heart toward them. His eyes rest kir.dly on bis old comrades in arms, and time and again have I seen extended toward them the warm grasp of his strong right hand, which seemed to say, "By communion of the Banner, Battle-scarred but victor Banner, By the baptism of the Banner. Brothers of one faith are we!"' BUSINESS EXPENSES. The Boston Traveller insists that one great drawback to the dry goods trale of that city 1km been the enormous penses incurred in conducting the busi ness; and it instance the following: "At a recent meeting of the creditors of one of the largest dry goods jobbing hous-s in this city the fcllo-Jri:ig expanses were reported: Rents, jJ17,000; salari-s of salesman, book keep-rs, -e. .s'J.O'lO; traveling expense.., t'la.OO"; a total of $76,000, or aixHtt 10 per cent, of the gross amount of sale. It is from such items as these, and the personal e:pens s ofjnembersof firms, that the remark ble deficiencies come, and here is wher the reform must set in. In the older and more prosperous days of our jobbing trade, the partners, with rare excep tions, were the salesmen, and when a clerk had proved himself capable and useful he was given a subordinate po sition in the firm. Xow in our larger houses each department has a head man, at a salary In some instances equal to that of a Cabinet minister, and with as many attendants at his command; a miniature nabob in his way, while his ill-paid and bard-worked underlings bear the burden of tbe labor. There are exceptions, it Is true, but this is the rule. One of the greatest evils that has grown op of lato with our large jobbing houses is the absurd custom of sending out drummers. We have the testimony cf one large concern that it does not pay and never has paid, and the abolishing of it would be of immense benefit to tbe trade. A few more revelations like tbe one we have alluded to must inevitably result in a radical reform. GREAT BANK ROBBERY. Systematic Raid on the Northampton Bank Vault —Large Sums Stolen and None of the Seven —Large Sums Stolen and None of the Seven Robbers Arrested. Springfield. Mass.. January 27. The burglars who entered Xorthampton bank Tuesday night, rirt securing the cashier in his home and taking from him the keys of tbe vault, took a large amount of securities, a considerable portion not being cegotiable. Later details of the robbery of Xorth ampton National Bank at Xorthampton Tuesday night, by masked robbers, state the result is something appalling. The table of securities taken shows a total of -ji'90,000. Of course much of this is not negotiable, so that it is difficult to estimate the real loss to the bank and depositors. The bank officers offer a reward of 23,000 for the return of tte property and the conviction of the rob bers, Boston, Mas?., January 27. The robbers entered the house of Cashier Whittlesey and bound, gagged and guarded for hours seven people. They compelled him to give them the combi nation of the safe vaults, waited until they knew the night watchman had gone home, and then getting into the vanlt safe with only one of the four keys needed, they took a large amount of securities. Au expert had to be sum moned from Xew York and the lock was not opened until an early honr this morning. Cashier Whittlesey, when asked to give the three combinations to the vault for the outer, inner aud chest doors gave them the wrong one twice and thrice, but the burglars wrote them down and made him repeat them. Of course they eaught him iu the attempt to mislead them, and the exhibition of a pistol compelled him to tell the truth, though he told theui that four keys were neces sary to open the patent locks, three 6f which were at the houses of the other bank officers. At four o'clock A. M. Whittlesey was taken to a down stairs bed room. The whole family were gaged and four of the burglars withdrew to operate on the bank. Three hours after Mrs. AVhittle sey succeeded iu freeing herself and giving the alarm from a window. The whole party were speedily liberated and the cashier still wearing the handcuffs, went to the bank. A clever workman soon after fitted a key and all ihe per sons handcuffed were released. An examination of the bauk showed that the cracksmen had unlocked the outer door, but were apparently balked by the safe lock, lacking three of the requisite four keys. They tried the metal of the floor with bars aud wrenched off two dials which served as an index for woi-kitig the combination. They were entirely unmolested, the watch having gone home. There is every indication that six aud perhaps all of them left on the 6 o'clock train. Five of them had tickets previ ously bought, and one paid his fare. Many of the appliances, It was remarked, were home made, the gags were child ren's rubber balls pierced with a stiff wire, the masks were drawers legs, some with one hole and some with two for eyes. When the robbers saw that AVhit tlesey was watching them for some marks of identification, they blind-folded him, but he observed that one of them was of a very commanding stature. The two or three robbers left to guard the prem ises at the house took their departure iu season to catch the Springfield train. At latest advices no information had been received of tiie robbers. Washington. January 27. A dit patch received to day at the Treasury from the Xorthampton Xation Bank of Massachusetts, states that 2,900 in un signed five dollar notes of the bank were secured by the burglars on the night of the 2.ith iust. The numbers of the notes are as follows: Bank, Xo. 1 to 145, and Department, Xo. 23.), 751 to 229,89.1, series of 1S75. Springfield, Mass., January 28. It is now believed that the whole amount of losses by the Xorthampton bank rob bery Is over 1,000,000, nearly one half of which is negotiable. HOW TO BORROW MONEY. Complaint Ls made by people who do not understand how it is done, that al though the papers report money easy here, and rates at from say three to five per cent, they cannot borrow money at less than from twelve to twenty per cent. They do not understand that it takes money, or its eqaivale.it, to get money, and that the low rates spoken of in tbe papers are for loans on convertible col laterals, such as United States bonds, and undoubted securities of other kinds which can be converted at a moment's notice into money, and that these loans are on call, that is, subject to be called in at a day's notice, and that if the money is not forthcoming these collat erals are sold. You can't get into the money market in Wall street unless yon have the "qtibu!u:u., It is quite dif ferent here as elsewhere w'teu you eome to borrow money on mortgage, or bn other species of property, and it is ex tremely difficult to borrow at all on property any distance from this city.

Fine Job Work a Specialty. GOV. HAYES. The career of Gov. Hayes, says the Dayton Journal, has been remarkable. But he owes his great success in life as much to his industry, integrity, and sound judgement as to that good fortune which has ever attended him. At col lege he graduated with the first honors of his class. He was admitted to the bar with honors, and shortly acquired a handsome practice. The office of City Solicitor sought him iu Cincinnati, and iu mat ne won aistincuon. in 1301 n volunteered in the service of his country, and entered tbe field as Major of the Twenty-third Ohio Infantry. By faith- -f ul and distinguished service in the field he was promoted step by step to the high grade of Major General. While hi tbe field he was urged to be a candidate for Congress, and he abruptly replied Ixr substance that the niau who would de-' sen the field at such a time to become an rvfft f o.u.lr A a i i. - vo.. uoivvi IVWUIVk e . admiring fellow-citizens however, sent-" mm to congress afterwards, where lsJ uniMuu ag a legislator OX Super rior discretion and souid judgement.

Ia 1869 he was renomi- - nated by acclamation, and in another sharp contest, in which his abilities as a ' Arakftlrar wat) tinlmml nuiuuif Am- - feated George H. Pendleton, the most popular Democrat in Ohio. Retiring to private life to look after his own large ' personal interests, he was again urged to take the field for Governor last year, but he firmly and repeatedly declined. The Republican Dartr. however, refused to take no for an answer, and nominat ed him in spite of his refusal to permit the use of his name in Convention. Atter a canvass, unparalleled in the political history of Ohio, he overcame tha T'irtj-wwa t lit t a ?rv v fK J ing two years in the State, and defeated Gov. Allen, whose popular strength was Veyond question, much greater than that of any other Democrat in the State. The credit of this victory was due more ". -to the signal ability displayed by Gov. . Hayes than to all other causes. People " bad confidence in his integrity and dis cretion, and he exhibited ability in aiiairs that established lor nim a repu tation of which Ohio is as proud as his most intimate friends. With such a character, and such a record, it was not only natural, but irresistible, that his name should be brought to tbe f.-ont for the Presidency. While his qualities, in some respects, may not be as shining as those of Blaine or Morton, the two lead ing Republican aspirants for the Presi dency, we presume that none who know Gov. Hayes will deny that be is superior in sound discretion, and calm, good judgment. He is pre-eminently a safe man.

The following is from the Dispatch, the opposition paper at Col umbos: Governor Hayes has been especially . fortunate in the selection of bis personal and military staff. Hon. Alfred E. Lee, -of Delaware, assistant editor of the Journal, has been uppointed Private Secretary. Capt. Lee is a gentleman who has performed honorable service in the army and Legislature, and is admir ably suited by education and inclination to fill the place. He is affable and cour teous and will make friends with all who have official intercourse with him. Of the appointment of R'ldney Foos to the position of Executive Clerk, we spoke on Saturday. Capt. Foos is one of tbe most popular of our young Republicans, and there is no better qualified man for the place in the Slate. Capt. Wykoff, the late efficient Secretary of State, bas been appointed Adjutant General. The Captain's late services as Chairman of the Republican State Central Committee gave evidence of his splendid abilities as an organizer, which is the chief requis ite of the position to which be has been appointed. He is popular with every body who Knows him and his appoint ment will give general satisfaction. Capt. C. W. Karr, of CTincinnati, the ranking Captain of the State Militis, is the appointee for Assistant Adjutant General. He is full of military ardor and will give his whole soul to the work of putting our military organization ou a splendid footing. Ed. M. lfooor, who was Clerk under Adjutant Genarat Knapp, is appointed to the same posi tion again. He was faithful and effi cient then, and with tbe benefit of that experience cannot fail to make an ac ceptable officer. There is talk of a clause In tbe Col orado Constitution providing for a jury of six instead of twelve, a majority to decide the verdict.
