A srcciAii election took plnce in the
Tenth Senatorial District of Minnesota
on Dec. 10, there having been a tie vote
at the November election. Despite ev
ery exertion of the .Republicans the anti-monopolist
candidate was elected by
7t.
Ix is stated by one of our exchanges
that tii e planters of Georgia propose
dividing their acreage yearly equally
bnl ween cotton and eorr. This is a
senbible move, that should be practiced
throughout the cotton belt. Then cot
ton would pay the planter some prolit.
The Washington correspondence of
the Cincinnati Gtizoitc soys: '.'A gen
tleman recently from London is author
ity for the statement that Senator
Stewart has been indicted therein com
mon with several other gentlemen in
terested in the Little Emma Mine op
oration. Stewart through hie friends,
is laboring to delay or prevent trial.'
The Washington correepodent of the
Cincinnati Commercial states that
Judge Bustecd, of Alabama, who stands
in great danger of being investigated
.with a view to impeachment, has chosen
that better course, which was adopted
by Sherman and Delalnvy, and will at
once resign his position and retire to
the plejisurcs of dignified private life,
with none to molest and make him
afraid.
The Americans are ai office-seeking
people, and the mania, for such it is, is
nut confined to the male portion. It
is stated that the number of female ap
plic;ints for positions in the Treasury
Department is increasing so rapidly
that officials are growing alarmed. The
applicants come from all parts of the
country, some of them traveling thou
sands of miles, and the positions they
seek pay from thirty to forty dollars a
a mouth.
The sufferings of settlers in north
western Iowa prove to be much greater
than has been believed. One thousand
families, estimated to number over
J-,M) persons, are actually suffering
from want of food. The famine has
been brought on by the .grasshopper
plague, which has utterly destroyed the
crops in that section of the country
Aside from the nrcnarations for relict
made in different parts of the State
the State Grange has appointed A spe
oial committee, with headquarters
Dcs Moines, to receive subscriptions.
it
TliH Richmond Enquirer regards itas
most unfortunate for the harmony of
Southern society that the 'civil rights
bill hue been brought again before
Congress, because there is at present
iKttcr feeling between the races than
at any lime since the close of the war.
it is because of this fnc? that the aiders
and abettors of the movementhave pre
cipitated it into Congress. They do
n.it wish U see the Southern people,
white and black, getting along in har
mony. That spoils their plans and
purposes.
It is something to be the son of a
President now-a-daye. A dispatch to
thf Cincinnati, Commercial states that
Lieut. CoL Fred. Dent Grant, son of
the President, for some time a member
of Lieutenant General Sheridan's staff,
where he saw much arduous service,
itas been ordered to Washington for
duty lib a mustering and disbursing
officer. The now position will not en
tail any severe hardships upon the
Lieutenant Colonel, while he will be en
abled to enter the distinguished society
. with which the Capital is filled.
Tub Washington correspondent of
the Cincinnati Commercial reports Sen
ator Carpenter as saying n the 2Gth
in t., that Williams will not be con
firmed, the opposition to him beiug so
strong that all hope 'of overcoming it
h is been abandoned. The ?ame corres--p-.nd"nt
reports as follows:
-With regard to the Art .racy-General's
landaulettc, the President is s.iid
t. xpress the opinion that this row is
but a part of the contemptible perse
cution of Mrs. Williams, which has
disgraced the Nation since her hus
band's nomination to be Chief Justice.
His Excellency has grown extremely
sensitive on the question of the con
firmation of Williams, and regards
Senators who are not disposed to in
dorse and approve his taste and judg
ment m the affair a great deal more in
aifgcr than in sorrow. His anger is
also aggravated by his surprise at the
audacity of souic'of those who have
not hitherto comported themselves with
iKihecmlv independence, llie course
which they pursue would much better
befit the openly and notoriously wicked
Senators, who,"as Democrats, have no
claim to be thought proper men to sec
ond his Excellency in his efforts to
choose efficient staff oflie.'is by un
questioning approval under all circum
stances." The New York Times, which has
been regarded and treated as the
Grant organ in the commercial metrop
olis, is growing "disloyal." It has
found fault with the nomination of At
torney General Williams to 1k Chief
Justice, in that,as Mr. Webster said on
a liK'iiKU-able occasion, it wa a nomi
nation not fit to be made." and spoken
in the most disrespectful terms of
Sickles even after Grant had refused to
accept the doughty Minister's resigna
tion. Hear the Timet:

MILEAGE.
By the act of Congress passed in
1818, the pay or compensation of Sen
ators and Representatives in Congress',
was fixed at eight dollars for each and
every day while attending, the eittings
or sessions of Congress. The act did
not provide any compensation for the
requisite time in going to and return
ing from the capital. At fhat time
there were no railroads, but few steam
boats, and not many stages in the
Southern and Western States. Troin
these sections most members traveled
on horseback and others in their pri
vate conveyances. Some rule had to be
adopted for the compensation of ' mem
bers for the time required in going to
and returning from the sessions of
Congress. In the army practice,
twenty nines travel was counted lor a
ly. For instance, if a soldier was
discharged one hundred nlileB from his
home, he was allowed pay for five days
;it the rate of compensation for which
his services in the army were paid. The
same rule was adopted in the case of
members of Congress, by providing
tliat each Senator and Represen
tative and Delegate should be al
lowed eight dollars for ev
ery twenty miles traveled in
going to and returning from attending
the sessions -of Congress, the same as
the pay for each day while in actual
attendance. In both cases it was .com
pensation for the time and services ' of
the member, out of which ho had to
pay his expenses while traveling, as
well as while in Washington attending
to his duties as a member of Congress,
What has been called mileage was not
given to reimburse expenses incurred
in traveling, but as compensation for
the time in going to and returning from
the seat of government, estimating
every twenty miles traveled by the most
direct and usually traveled route from
the home of the member to the capital
as one day. Now that members arc
paid a stated salary per annum, instead
of by the dny, the reason for mileage
.has ceased. There is no more reason
or iustice in naving mileage or actual
traveling expenses in going to and from
the capital than there is for paying the
board and other actual expenses of
members while in Washington attend
ing the sessions of Congress.
HOW THE 'OLE TIIIXG WOKKS.
It was only after he had secured by
lobbvinir. his own double salary of
?o0,000, that President Grant could
afford to begin preaching retrench
ment to Congress in his last message.
iii publishing his recommendations, we
expressed our f ears that Radical econ
omv would ero no further than the
J o
Nashville customhouse and such other
enterprises. A few days before the
adjournment for the holidays, Congress
man Garfield was challenged, by some
blind partisan of the Adminitration, to
specify any item wherein the estimates
could be cut down, and in reply the first
item of retrenchment he mentionecLwas
the stoppageof work on public buildings
throughout the country, either project
ed or in process of erection. The un-
willingness of a Congress already
smarting under popular indignation, to
intensify the odium against them by a
i.w of n dditional taxes, has induced
the Radical majority to impeach their
. ...
i,vm Aiimunsirauon oi c.ii.nuuaiu,c
)X demanding a revision of the depart'
mcnt estimates. The only response so
far, is the semi-official statement last
week that the War Department would
cut down its estimates for the improve
ment of harbors and rivers and fortifi
cations from twenty million dollars to
three millions. The improvement of
harbors and rivers is a crying need of
commerce, and the universal demand
for cheap transportation shows that the
people at large appreciate theueed. The
la:c threat of war with Spain elicited th
confession from official sources that the
fortification of our sea-coast cities, par
ticularly on the South Atlantic and the
Gulf were not commensurate with safe
ty. This fact was recognized in the
President's message, in referring to the
safety of our cities." And so of cus
torn houses, etc., at various pomis
throughout the country the needs of
the public service demand the erection
of such buildings here m Nashville and
elsewhere. Another serious objection
to this style of retrenchment is that it
will tli row thousands of honest work'
ingmen out of the means of livelihood
in the midst of a money panic and the
inclemencies of winter, it is not wise
the Government to furnish fresh
fuel for the Communistic fires already
breaking forth at intervals in the
Northern hives of industry.
But why is all this unwise and un
timely retrenchment deemed necessary?
Why has the Federal treasury become,
insolvent, and already gone in debt
over twcntv-oiie umuuus, uui.mi.uuj,
because without consent of Congress?
The pickings and stealings, peculations
and plunderings of Radical officials arc
the sole cause. Commerce and the im
provement of rivers and harbors must
suffer, that the wives and families of
Cabinet and bureau officers may sport
inlandaulets at Government expense.
The safety of our cities must be ex
posed for want of fortifications, to fur
nish them with drivers and domestic
servants at the public expense. The
public sen-ice must be conducted at
great inconvenience in buildings rented
from political favorites at an enormous
annu al cost , in order that horses and hay
may be furnished gratis for the private
use of public functionaries. Thou
sands of honest workmen must walk
the streets in mid winter without em
ployment or bread, to keep up govern
ment stables and government grooms
for the Plutonian aristocracy oi wasn-
in'tou. We utterly condemn this one
sided economy. Wc emphatically pro

to continue the national works needed
in all divisions of our State. Let the
know that there is no occasion for this

A POBTEK'S I.UCK.
From the Cincinnati Commercial.
Washington. Dec. 26. Something
over a year ago the nation was startled
bv the announcement that Major Hor-
ace Sorter, ot the uranance uorps, .ore
vet Brigadier General and Secretary to
President Grant, had resigned all those
positions and then- emoluments, to accept
the Yicc Presidency and management
of the Pullman Car Company. The
President addressed a letter to General
Porter regretting his resignation, and
expressing a hope thM his future woidd
be prosperous, and haa tne same puo
lished in all the organs of the Admin
istration. Since then the country has
been resting calmly in the belief that
Horace Porterwasrcapinglns rewardas
a private citizen. Much indignation at
nresent exists, however, anions the
Ordnance uorps, m consequence oi it
havine leaked out that Porter's resig-
nation has been held over ana never ac
cented bv the President or officially an
nounced as it should have been long
atro. thus blockinsr the way of mento
rious officei-s to deserved promotion. It
is claimed that this favoritism on the
nart of the Commander-in-Chief is
shown for his late aid-de-camp, m Ol
der to allow the latter an opening back
to the army should his civil venture
prove disastrous. The question has
been raised, and remains unanswered.
Is Gen. Porter drawing pay from the
.rovemment. while sivinn his services

From tlie St. Louis Republican
The Spanish Minister at Washington al
leged that his government could produce
proof that the steamer Virginias whidi had
cleared from the noit of New York in tlie
fall of 1S70, was not, within the meaning of
the term, an American vessel entitled to an
American register, and consequently was
not entitled to the protection of the Ameri
can Hair. I pon the cx-partc statement
made under tlie protocol, the Attorney-Gen
eral decided, not upon the merit of tlie
question, but upon the testimony presented,
that the salute to the Hag must lie waived
accordins to the terms of the protocol.
Tliat portion of the protocol which required
a salute having been waived, ana tue time
lor the salute by stipulation having passed,
our siovernment has no longer a claim uixmi

the evidence in the courts of the United

not justified by the tine facts of the case.

To the tJnlon atid American.
LEAVTSBitRd, Tenn., Dec. 22. Ill
v-oiir issue of the 18th inst., you copj
an article irom the minisviuc iJiia.j
Indencndcnt about the trial of W. D.
Moliett alias W . A. Uraham, charged
with having obtained money under
false pretense from J. S. Ewing (or
rather from the Masonic Lodge at this
place,) which trial took place a few
weeks ago at the JJecember term oi our
Criminal Court, But for the personal
ities, mis-statements and quasi charge
of persecution, of said Moffet made
against some of the good citizens of
this community in said article,
we woiua
;ive it no attention
We arc all content
whatever
to leave the matter where the jury left
it. if others will do the same. If the
Mr. Graham who figured in Lewisburg
is not identical with the Mi Monet ot
Huntsville, some curious incidents have
occurred. For instance, Mr. Hobson
who accompanied the arresting party
to Huntsville was identihed m a crowd
by Moffet who came up and shook
hands with him. "Whence this acquain
tance if Moffet was never m Lewisburg
as he now claims? Airain Mr. Moffet's
little girl when produced on the trial,
told exactly the same story oi ner
father's travels which Mr. Graham told
when chtaining the money in our town
in 182. We must demur to the "law
of the Independent when it says that,
with the authority ot two Uovernors
(Alahama and Tennessee,) the omcers
should not have made the arrest if the
prisoner denied the charge. Under
such law, very few criminals could be
arrested. As to his being conhned m
jail five months for want of a $3,000
bond, we presume the editor is misin
formed. Our Criminal Court was in
session, and if his innocence could be
, . i i i a
proven, nc need not nave siayeo. m
jail six days. The bond required was
onlv S2.000. Besides it was JVlottet
himself who continued the trial. Why
did his church brethren in Huntsvilie
leave him in jail if they were satisfied
of his lnnocencer At length the At
torney General went to trial without
his nrinciDal witness. Does that look
like persecution.-' Jlr. Jawing untoitu
natelv had mislaid the note received
from Graham, and so the trial narrow
ed down to the identity of themau, and
the fl?i& came into play. Eight or ten
honest citizens of Lewisburg positively
identified Moffet as the Graham who
had irot Mr. Ewinc's money. These
men are of the same conviction still
Citizens of Huntsville, no doubt equal
ly honestly, swore that Moffet was in
their ctiy on the d ot June, iocs, xne
jury had to decide wnctner me one
party were mistaken in the man, or tue
other party mistaken in the date. The
prisoner got the beneht ot the doubt,
and there we would leave the matter
rest but for this charge of persecution
