Is carefully to scan all tbojtemi and cnt all

coniUtent with the proper administration of
tbe public lerrlce.
Hon. William A. RicnARDSOir, AnUUot
Secretary of tho Treainry, who aorno time
since tendered his resignation, has resoired
to MTcr his connection with tho Depart
ment at tbo close of the yoar, and will
leare hero probably en Monday next. The
Preside ot has urgently rcoutitcd Mr. Rich-
ftrdson to remain In ofl.ee but tbe prof-
slonal nntlee of tho Judge demand bta at
tention at home, and he ba therefore de
clined to contlnuo In office after tbe. close of
tbe preiont month.
Tas Latb Mr. StantoVb Familt. The
public will bo glad to learn tbat Immediate
measures will bo taken to place Mr. Btan
ton' family In a comfortable pecuniary con
dition. Mr 8 tan ton died leaving little or
no means: beyond tbo houio tbe family lUe
In, and tbree of tho children aro under four
teen years of age. A meeting of several of
hli Intlmato personal friends was held Mon
day eTeulog, at tbe residence of Hon. Sam
uel ftooper, at which It was determined to
placotbe lura of 1100,000 to tbe credit of
Mr. StauloVs umlly by Now Years Day.
Trcildcnt Graut has subicrlbcd 11,000 for
this object. 80 long as tbo late Secretary
lhcd he eteadUy refused to permit bis friends
to do any act of this kind, but tbey are now
at liberty to do for his family what he was
htmielf unable to do for tbcra.

Steamiblp Companies leem not dlapoted to
accept tho reduced rate of compensation for
carrying tbe nulls, and taking adraatage of
tho termination of our postal arrangement
with France, threaten lo discard the malls
unless advanced rates are paid. By tho
postal arrangement recently nude between
tbls country and Great Britain, tbe poets go
was fixed at six cents, ono third of wblch
went to the steamers, and one third to each
Oorernmont. The steamship companies are
In a position to make- a good deal of troablo
to the Department, but we doubt not tbey
will find that It would bare been better to
hare let well enough alone.
Tbe rost master General has gone lo New
York to look Into the matter personally, and
Is In no mood to bo Imposed upon. It has
been suggested tbat tbls occurrence will go
far to Induce Congress to aid In tbe mainte

Times Tho Xew York TUtux has taken oc
casion, within the past week or two, to edi
torially attack Washington and Its citizens.
Tbeso reflections were considered by many
unmerited, and we are glad to know tbat
the Wasblngton correspondent of tho Timti,
"Cymon," has taken np the cudgel In our
defence. We quote from his letter In Mon
The pcopla of Washington are getting
pretty thoroughly aroused on tbe subjoct of
tho proposed International Exhibition In
1873 Tbe Imputations upon the city bare
provoked a spirit of resentment, wblch Is
likely to hare an excellent effect In convinc
ing tbo country that there Is pluck, energy
and capital here, contrary to a general belief
otherwise. Certainly some of tbo criticisms
upon Washington recently mado aro wholly
undeserved. For tbo past four years tho
people have certainly shown no lack of pub
lic spirit. The Improvement of the city bas
been marked la point of prlvAte enterprise,
aud If Congress bad half dona Us duty, or
aided tbe citizens In doing theirs, tbo pro
gress would baro been all tbat coutd bo de
sired, ttben Senator Morrill, of Vermont,
gets up In tbe Senate and says bo Is
"ashamed of Washington" he Is simply ad
mitting tbat ho Is ashamed of bis own work.
UIs ipt-ech tho other day was the severest
rebuke to Congress which bas yet been ut
tored, though It was not Intended as such.
Nothing Is clearer than tbat It Is the duty
of Congress to make tho capital tbe prldo of
tbo nation Yet Mr. Morrill admits tbat be
Is asbamsd of himself. It Is becauso be bas
neglected his duty. Lere (300,000 hare
been appropriated, 8,000,000 should be.
By tho vicious system now In vogue, Con
gross appropriates half euough money for
an object, and than leaves It In an uuflulshod
condition, and quarrels over the work al
ready done. No wonder Mr. Morrill Is
ashamed of It. IIo ought to be, and bis
sbamo ought to cover hltn until be sees bis
da.y clearer and uses his lunuct.ee to make
Washington what bo himself declares It
ought to be.
Suppose you remove tho caj Ital to some
nlacoout West, where you cau get a now
jurisdiction ceded for tbo purpose, bow long
will Mr. Morrill and his friends coutlnuo to
be ashamed of tbclr capital f Hit has taken
sovsnty years to bring Washington to a
E point where, with (150,000,000 of public ex
eudlture, it Is still lu a shameful condition,
ew long would it take to build a new capl
talon tbe Mississippi that was not a shame
and a reproach to tbo nation f Tho way to
reinova reproach from Washtngtou Is to au
thorlzo the annual expenditure of two or
tbreo millions of dollars, under a military
engineering commission, composed of meu
llkt General Humphrl", Gmeral Mlcbler,
Secretary Belknap, dec. Mlcbler docs won
ders, ortu now, with tbo beggarly sums at
bis command. But trust hltn as truly as
bt deserves to be trusted, with two millions
Jer annum, and see what ho would do
fake hltn as truly Prefect of tbo Potomac
as Ilnussmann Is Prefect of tbo Seine, and
public reproach will uot loog rest upou
