uro of 889,615 per mile, or nearly 824,
000,000 clear proflt on the cost of build-
ing and equipping tho road. Mr. Wash-
burne says, .too, that the road is badly
located aiid poorly built'. and . ho thinks
it mt?ht be well to inquire .whether the
company that is lobbying the bill through
is not in reality a "bogtis eoneem.
' This startling exhibit ought certainly
to suggest the question, how long can the
Treasury survive such ' drains as these ?
These statistics flatly demand retrench
ment and "warn, the people, of the ap
proach of bankruptcy, ... or the saviug
.clause repudiation. , Mr. Washburnc
discerns in the future the condemnation
of his Jacobin party, by the .tax-payers,
henco his opposition to this Denver Rail
road and Telegraph bill, the pioneer bond
and land job of this session : Open the
door again, he sayf, and Other jobs lying
in wait, to' the' extent of 8200,Q00,000,
will walk in two hundred flpaillions for
the benefit of speculators, . lobbyists and
adventurers. : ; Ndw, : granting .that the
advantages1 to the trade 6f the feduntry,
internal, and .external, and to tho new
States and Territories in tneir develop
ment, and to . the Treasury eventually,
will amply pay for the lands and : bonds
granted for the main Continental Pacific
Railroad Tine, the facts still appear that
the legislation upon this subject has been
exceedingly loose and manifestly , cor
rupt, and that in consequence millions of
acres of land have been squandered, and
nearly fifty millions of dollars added to
the national debt by the "party in power.
The people of this country, the honest
tax-payers, insist that the door shall hot
be opened to the additional two hundred
millions in. these railway 'jobs lying in
wait in the lobby, . .. i; X . v

on the. leading merchant tailor of the

the aid of melting. The pantaloons thus

A Careful Paper.
The Chicago Tribune which suffered
so heavily a few days ago for an unflat
tering police item, before a prejudiced
and very silly jury, now' has the word
"alleged" electrotyped, and uses' it be
fore everybther word in its reports
Here is one of its new model reports :
"It is alleged that one Frederick Mey
er, alleged to be doing ' business in this
city, was arraigned '.before one Hoyne,
who is alleged to be a commissioner of
the "United States, on yesterday. It is
alleged that the alleged party charged
with an alleged fraud upon : an alleged
Government, assisted in some way in
smuggling some alleged drugS,' which
are alleged to be of considerable value.
Tt is alleged that the alleged case was
postponed :nntil Monday, alleged to be
the 11th day of January. It is further
alleged that the : alleged defendant' was
held to bail. It Is Alleged tl at Mr. Meyer
whom it is alleged kept an alleged drug
store, being before an alleged commis
sioner whose name is alleged to be Hoy
ne, who was required to give a bond,
which, it is alleged, requires the alleged
Mr. ; Meyer to furnish for payment of
any sum of money which some enlight
ened, but yet not alleged jury, may
allege against him, as damages sustained
by the alleged G overnment
Too Much Kitten.
An exchange has a local who was
very greatly amused the other day, at
hearing a ladv aunt of sixteen, talking
to her married sister's baby of eight
months old. "And here let us say,"
continues the aforesaid local, "that we
.believe a child would talk plain and cor
rect a great deal sooner if it was not
fooled with 'all the mocking 'mother
tongues.' This young lady aunt has a
favorite kitten for a plaything instead of
a poodle, and the other day wo happen
ed to hear the following soft baby talk.
The little one was very cross and the
young aunt seeing her kitty coming that
way hoped to still the baby's cries in
this manner : "Besse baby's 'ittle bones,
am auntie's 'ittle darling," and reaching
down for her kitty, while the baby clung
to her watch chain, exclaimed, ' "don'te
baby wante p'ay wis auntie's 'ittle titty,'
and commenced stroking the kitty's
back, but thinking we might miscon
strue the meaning of the sentence, she
scampered ' out of the room with her
face buried in the child's swaddling
Moral. Young lady aunts should
talk plain to babies at all times and un
der all circumstances.
- The Greeks SIIU Stubnorn.
A cable telegram informs us that the
Greek government has refused to abide
by the decision of the Paris conference
Another telegram informs' us that the
Viceroy of1 Egypt has offered to aid tbe
Sultan with an army of fifty thousand
men in the event of war, and a fleet be
.Sides. This indicates life cn both sides.
It does not convince us, however, ' that
Greece is foolish enough to ruin all her
hopes. Greece can lose but she cannot
gain by war; for the Christianity of Eu
rope is quite as willing to be hired in the
interest of the Turks as in the interest
of the Greeks. We can have no ; more
crusades after, the old lashion,
'' ' lerThc consumption of meat in France
and England is computed as follows
: France consumes 910,000 tons of meat
annually, while the English devour 1,
660.000 tons more, notwithstanding, the
fact that the. population of France ex
ceeds that of Great Britain by at least
seven millions of persons. Were it pos
sible to ascertain correctly of animal flesh
eaten and wasted in the United States,
there is little doubt that it would exceed
the aggregate of both France and Eng
land, for it is notorious fact that no
people on the face of the globe eat' and
waste as much as. tiic Americans.

-vt- Horrible. 'r-f r'Y
vOn Thursday night last in Kirkwood
township, a young man ' by the name of
Carr, ut tho throat -'of a young girl" by
the name or t ox. . she died immediately
He was found in th&woodsaftcr wards
with his throat cut, but did not die until
Saturday. We have not learned the par
ticulars, but it is supposed she hail re
fused to become his wife, when he became
enraged.. ' .,
oinee f tne above wns put . in type we
learn that the girl was 14 years of age
and Carr i 28. He is not vet dead al-
ough he shot himself and cut his
throat It seems that the girl was living
with a neighbor, where this young man
was at work.' And the father learning
that overtures of marriage were being
made to his daughter; sent a youg son to
bring her home. .On their road home,
Carr stepped Txom his', concealment and
after a short conversation in which he
asked her if she would become his wife,
and On giving him a negative answer, he
seized her and cut her person in some 14
places with a razor, nearly severing the
head from the body. He ' afterwards
concealed himself in the spring bouse
near the' girl's father's house, for the
purpose of killing other members of the
family, as he had threatened so to do.
Upon being required to surrender under
threat of being shot byjthe neighbors
who had congregated to arrest him, he
shot himself in the breast, the ball pas
sing through his left lung and lodging in
his shoulder. He then took a shoe knife
from his boot and made several cuts
across his throat, severing the windpipe,
but not reaching the jugular vein. He
was requested to take the razor and fin
ish himself which he declined to do. He
is still living but not able to be brought
to jail.

Decision in Regard to tne Income
' Tax Law.
In the case of the United States
against William E. Frost, indictment for
a false income return for 1866, the jury
have returned a verdict of not guilty. It
appears that Mr. FrOst's return for that
year 6howed an income of about 810,'
000. The Government claimed that there
ought to have been returned about 83,
000 in addition. The defence set up was,
rant this sum was exempted from taxa
tion as bad debts. ,. The case turned on
a law point. Judge Drummond decided
that a man was Sot bound to . return as
income debts or promises to pay, but
was only required to return the , gains,
profits, or income of his business actual
ly received. He thought that it would
be unreasonable' on the part of the Gov
ernment to require a man to pay a tax
on a promise to pay or a mere debt,
when neither might be collected, espc
ciaiiy as the party would have no re
course upon the Government to recover
the amount so paid. ! The. Court" in
structcd the jury that they would be just
lned iu finding the party not guilty un
der the opinion which he had intimated,
although he desired so to qualify! it as
to state that if a person had a note or
an account due him, and be neglected to
collect it when it matured, or refused
the money when tendered, oi if he re
ceived other property in exchange for
the sum due, and in liquidation of the
indebtedness, then he . would . be liable.
Tbe Fate ol lhe Alabama Claims
Treaty In Doubt.; ' ,
The following is the text of the joint
resolution introduced by W. E. Robinson j
of Brooklyn, in the House, on. the 25th
.... t il r
un., protesting against tne ratiucaiion 01
the treaty for the settlement of the Ala
bama claims : ; : v ; .'X
Jiesohed, dec, That the people of the
United States will not approve of the
ratification of the treaty for the settle
ment of the Alabama claims nor of any
other treaty with' England, while she
holds our citizens in prison for acts done
under our flag; and that the people of the
United States think the settlement of the
Alabama claims of very little ' import
ance anyhow. " ' " " ' :
Whatever may be thonght of the reso
lution of Mr. Robinson, there is reason
to believe that tho Senate has nO inten
tion of ratifying the Alabama : claims
treaty in its present 'shape. No 'action
has, of course, been taken yet, but the
Senators have all ' read the treaty and
have nearly all made up their minds ex
actly how they will vote upon it The
terms are very generally denounced, and
there is little doubt that it will be de
feated.. Y. lie 'aid, 26A ult. '
Settlements In tbe South
There is no stronger evidence of tl
falsehood of the assertion that Southern
people are opposed to settlers among
them coming from the North, than the
fact that the South is constantly nrsrin?
such to come. - At a late meeting of the
citizens of Canton, Mississippi, the fol
lowing resolution was unanimously past
sedi "' -. J
"Jiesohed, That we Bay to the people
of. the North and . West, unite with us in
restoring to our benighted country its
former, prosperity ; that we have here
abundance of cleared land, capable of
producing the most valuable staple in the
worlds and that we cordially invite them
to settle these lands with their families.
ZSTThe Cincinnati Commercial says,
with more truth than kindness,about last
year s Congressional legislation : v .
J'The . repeal or large modification of
the,Tenure-pf-Ofnce Law is opposed on
the ground that the repeal or modifica
tion would be an acknowledgement that
Congress had been guilty of partisan leg
islation. . We do not see that there is a
call for sensitiveness on that point Of
course such a law would not have been
passed save for the express purpose of
checking Andrew Johnson m his fell
purpose of taking the official lives of the
political friends Of the majority of mem
bers of the American Congress ! ; Any
other representation of the fact will be a
