If me i'o Dou read tne lecorti or proceedings on last I- rlday und Saturday It would have ascertained that its Democratic friends were Already Impressed with tho Impor tance of reopening tho flood-gates of in vestigation. In fact. It Is their only stock In trnde. They are cominced that they cannot compete with the Republicans In legitimate legislation. Henoe they try to dhcrt attention from their fniluros in that regard by slinging mud under the guise of lnves ligations. Thero 1 therefore, no danger of any Democrats assisting Republicans to avert investigation. In truth, tho Republicans do not usk anr bucIi assistance. They lmvo never objected to a legitimate lnentigation. What they do object to is the opening np of political sewers, not for an honest, legiti mate purpose, but to create, b stench In the nostril of honest men. The Republican party has novcr shrunk from imestfgVitig its own members when probable cause was shown.

They hold in quests over the 101 every morning, and oro men encouraged when they find atjpogrnphi cal error, JW. Reg pardon! The Republican ha no need to look for typographical errors. Errors of fact are so glaring that bad typo graphy Is a small matter In comparison. The trouble with our cotemorary is that It docs not seem to know tho difference be tween a typographical error aud an error of fact. Tor example, the Pant told Its readers yesterday that CoL Casey had informed Its reporter of the disposition he proposes to mako of tho three hundred and.cry-j!r thousand dollars appropriated In the defi ciency bill for the State, War, and Navy Department building. As Congress appropriated only three hundred and ftrenfy-jTre thousand dollars, wo hardly think Col. Casey talked about an expenditure of fifty thousand dol lars more. If the sum stated had been in figures, it might bo claimed typographic! error. As It is set oat at length, it looks very much like an error of fact. Resides that, CoL Casey to too old an army o nicer to talk about what disposition "&'' proposes to make of tho appropriation. Congress deposed of it for him by directing one hundred and sov-enty-flvo thousand dollars to be expended for continuation of the cast wing of the building and one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for continuation of the north wing.

Tho caw, as presented In tho letter itself, U, to our apprehension, sum- eicutly remarkable. That the Secretary of ,the Treasury, whoso duty it Utpadvlso Cougrcra of the public engagements requir ing to 1 provided for, hhould, whilo in the pcrformauce of that duty, at once inform the representatives ot tho peoplo that tho Government owes, aud has for years owed, largo sums of money ior uch coses as those embraced in the estimates ulluded to, aud In terms declare that he docs not recom mend that any provision bo mado for their payments, Is, to us, indeed inexplicable. It is nn occurrence which we feel ana certainty u n one wimii wa suouiu hope would not be Imitated. Rut wo are told that this is, after all, but half the case. and venro assured that Mr.SnKuMAN,ftooii afU'r coming Into ofitce, having adopted a moit preposterous construction of tho exist ing iipproprlitlon laws, in pursuance of which ho rcfussd present payment of this tUs of demaudd, neverthelem iustrucUl tho proper omuers to go oa adjusting them to far as they wre aubjeet'to utljudnient In the Treasury Depirtment, saying that when Congress met he would refer them lo that body fur an appropriation an ossuranco which he is wild to have more than once re peated, orally and In writing, to parlies In terested in the demands, or some of them. It has been sceu In what manner he re deemed that.promlso In the letter transmit ting hi estimates; but we are told that he did not content himself with that negation blow at theso demands, but actually went in person before the Committee on Appropria tion and advised that no appropriation should be mode for them. Now, webhonld 1 try glad to believe that theso statements are unfounded : but they come to us upon authority which we are obliged to credit, and wonre constrained to say that, If tiue, they present a casu which Justifies and demands nnimadvenlonv oi me severcat cimrocier. it is, in such caae, comparatively little concern of ours what may be the motives of Secretary Siier WAif, or what may be hU view of the duties ofthe Government toward 1U creditors, or of tho rights of the lattr; but it U of lm- racne contra ton, and to all the people of the country, that the Government shall not be turned Into an engine of 'oppression, and, at all events; that Secretaries of the Treasury and other pnbllo functionaries shall be made to' understand that a person does not lose his right to common Justice and ordinary good faith by becoming ft creditor ofthe Government, even though ho becomes such without his own consent, by the act of Providence, or tho illegal conduct ofthe Government's own agents, and though ho may not be fortunate enough to betho holder of any of the tnerfd "Government securities." Hon. X K. Chandler. Among the most roundly abused men of the present day Is Hon. WILLIAM H. Ciiandlpr, of New Hampshire. Every Rourbon journal In the South has denounced him without measure since his recent sharp nnd stinging letter jippeared In the New York lYtbunc, and other Journals, and tho Roston Globe (obis In tho choms with some extra nourishes and cadences, which are un called for nnd unwarranted. Inasmuch tuQ Mr. CitANDr.En has become such a promi nent target of ossnnlt, wo think it best that tho public should know more of his ante cedents. e are Indebted to the Concord (N. H.)

Hts record as law reporter and also asa member aud Sneaker of the House of Retro sen tat Ives for two successive terms beforoho was tweuty-seven years old, lighted up his riving pathway with unusual brilliancy. The jtcpuuiican momocrs or tne IjChsi attire dur ing the years that Mr. Chandler was Speaker will long remember with gratjtade the master ly manner In which he exposed treason in hi own party, aud sent the anti-war Democrats howllnff Into defeat. Tho boons veto brouiht Into tho House by the now waning star of in i men em. auiiost crios oi rovoiutioui" will not soon bo forgotten. In the midst of the war, when Secretary Chasu had plastered New Hampshire over with appointments In order to secure an In dorsement from his native. State for tho Pros! deucy, William 11 Chandler, although a personal friend of Mr. Chase, rogardlng tho re-election of Abbaham Lincoln as abso lutcly essential to tho success of tho Union cause, presented resolutions In the Republican State convention in favor of Mr. Lincoln for a second term, which resolutions wcro adopted with great unanimity, thus patting the ball in motion that continued him in omco until peaco came. Tho emclent administration of Mr.CHANDLXuasJudgeadvucatoof tho navy, and his subsequent brilliant administration as First Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, will stand out In bold relief long after his defam crs have paused Into obscurity.

That thero has been aud still is a wide difference among Re publicans In regard to tho policy of President HAYhsslnce he tame into oiliu eapecially in New Hampshire, noouo will pretend to deny; and that having seen and wmsed tbroueh tho Urrlble ttrugglo which 'Mr, Chandler did to secure an honest couut ior the haiks electors, It 1 not at nil surprising that he should hesi tate to accept a policy that has thus far pro- iiuceti noining ut Lemozraui victories ana Republican defeats.

Ho believes a largo standing army to bo ruin ous to tho public tteasury and demoralizing to the iopulatiou, aud that It deprives tho agri cultUKl districts of laborers, whereby arises a necessity for tho Importation of grain, which should lie raised at homo. Minister Washburne wrote to his brother Immcdlatelv after the death of Thlrnt "f on. tlclpatod great pleasure In meeting M.Thiers co leu nun oi uie complimentary words or Bismarck when I recently met the groat Ger man statesman at Berlin. He spoke of him lu tho most exalted terms, and said that he had rendered such services to France as to entitle him to tho proudest monument ever erected by a grateful people." . In hi late Hartford loctnre, Mr. Howells told tho romance of Gibbon's life. Whllo a young man he loved a young Swiss girl, but had so little spirit that be obeyed when his father told him not to marry her. "He lived to see her become the wife of Nockar the great Prime Minister of Louis XVI, and the mother of Mme. Do Staol. Gibbon iment his time while In France In hanging around the house of his former love, and admiring the happiness he had lacked the manliness to aohteve for himself." "Senator Gordon has received from the women of Columbia, a C, the gift of ft silver salver, as 'a token of their gratitude and re gard.' It was sent to him with an enthtuhutio femlulue letter, and the Senator has replied in a letter almost as enthusiastic." If wo read this literally, It would probably aay. Instead of "from the women," &e from a select few of the ladlos of the wealthiest and most nrlitn. cratlc families of Columbia, a C.,"&c, while it Is presumable that the great majority of the women of Columbia knew nothing of the "token" at all, and never bad the slightest re gard for the Senator.

It will not be long before th public will demand more In a 'a leading Juvenile nnn1 than th catmdiv tn dress in the height of fiuhIon,and to lean gncefully ujwn the back of a sofa." When this tlmo comes, aud tho dramatlo authors shall have learned that their vocation Is to teach as well as to amuse, o shall find In our fctugo a school of morula and true religion. rnraMDENT 1'ortek, of Yale, lu a sermon last Sunday, spoke approvingly of revival movements, and alluded to tho efforts of Mr. Moody, a plain and unpromising mau, who be gau modestly, v.Ith his heart aud hand lu the work", ralthriil,aulniated with a love for the Master, and whose labors In thl finld havn been signally blessed. "Had wo," be said, "men by the fifties Imbned with tho same simplicity of purpose, adherence, and devo tion, uunstiaiiity would mako more rapid strides, and the truths of the Christian n-tidon spread abroad, result In a complete moral rev olution, so that the word of God would bo In the mouth of every ono." Wnax Mr, Whlttler was introduced to Th Atlantie contributors tho other night, the en tire company rose and gave chcor upon cheer for the poet. Inrespousoho said: 'Probably nil of you, contributors to Th Atlantic know ociwr man to expect a sneccn iroia roe to night. I can only say that 1 am tory glad to meet my old friends of Tkt Atlantic, many of whom I have only known from their writ ings, nnd I sincerely thank then fur the re ception they havo given mo. When I sup posed that I would not bo able to attend this gathering, I placed In my friend Longfellow's hand a Utile bit of verse that I told him, If It was necessary, I wished ho would read. My voice is of 'a timorous natnro and rarely to be heard above the breath My friend Long, fellow will do me the favor to read the writ log. I fchatl be vary much obliged to him, and hone that ut his nlnetr-nlnth anniversary some of hlii you age friends will do as much ior nun." j ho lines were read by Mr. Jing fellow, and were greeted at the close with long and loud applause. The Itrturn of the liodlpil. ftem I ho New York 1 rtboxe There has been great rejoiciug in tho boose hold of Uncle Sam over tho return of the prodigal son, who Insisted upon taking the jmrtlon of tbe pnternal goods that fell to him, and going off Into another land, where he wasted his substance In attempting to set up a country of his own. It was about the time of the Centennial celebration that this Uttered and famished penitent was descried coming home. He was In a pitiable plight. While the hired servants of his father were making themselves comfortable in their consulships and pmt-olllces, reading tho uewspapers and talking politics, he bad watched them with hungry eyes, and In bitterness of spirit re called the good old times. In those fortunate and careless days the cork was always out of the bottle, and when the Southern gentleman was hard up he could go to Washington and demand an office, or at least soil a likely field hand or an ancestral house-eefvaut. Rut now thore was a famine In the land) tbe whisky wm all out and the niggers were all gone. He had to go home or starve, Tho head of tbe family saw him afar off, and ran oat to meet him. The prodigal was sup plied at once with new boots and a hot dinner. He was taken Into Congress. He had the pick ofsoraeofthe best ofilees, The whole com munity was invited to rejoice ever, his retura, to shake hands with hbn, to pethlai, and to celebrate the era of reconciliation, It is very much to the eredlt of the people that they joined In those fc1lcltatious wlihgrcat hearti ness, ask general tning.Fthcyaia not eom- Main" that there was altogether too much fuss over this ragged reprobite, who only came nome oecauso ne coum not neip nimseu; iney, gave him agenerouswclcoihoi they were quite elated ifhen they saw him tftktnghlsfdd place at tho tible t they chose to forget that ho had cost them, by his four years of rlotnfis living, a sum of three or four thousand millions! and to tell the truth he seemed cntlroly ready to iorget it too. inuecu, ue is lorgctting alto gether too much. For before he has been sir months at home he Is hectoring all the rest of tho households beating tho servants, smashing the' cVorkrrr. and threatening to turn everybody put of doors. He has Insulted and abused ths rrHt. ors ofthe family, and tried to blck arjuarrcr wim me neignoors, lie nas oeciareti mat the debts contracted In consequence of bis in I scon J duct and extravagance shall not be paid, but the honor and prosperity of the houso shall be sacrificed to bis temporary convenience. Hav log wasted half the property, he proposes to break open tbe domestlo trcasuro-chest, take all that remains, and eo back to hts riotous companion. When somebody remonstrates with him, ho replies, In tho words of Senator Lamar, "I havo been lusulted bytbls Govern ment Its eredlt and honor are nothing to me.- it wouia nave ueen bsaenouguir tne returned prodigal had only Indulged in a fresh couwe ef gambling, drnnkenues, and harlotry; but nothing will hult him except tho pillage mm complete ruin oi tno noma wnicn na re opened Its hesnltable doors to him sftar he has onco robbed and abandoned It. Forgiveness awakens In him no gmtltudo. Magnanimity Impels htm only to Insolence. Kindness he mistakes Tor cowardice, and rewards with out rage. Jmaglue tbe prodigal son of the Scriptures going luck to his tipsy eorapnnions after he hadententho flitted calf, and telling them, while the odor of stuffed veal still haunted his breath, that ho only went homo because he was hungry, but the old man's conduct was most abominable, and now that ho had re freshed himself he meant to nwrt h irLt Tli.it is about what the Hon. Mr. Botler, of ctouin uaroima, nss just done. .No sooner had ho been admitted to the SnnaU lhan !.. wnt to Columbia, And In a public speech gave a inuwionnie nccount oi ino way in which he had been put upon at Washington. "I have submitted," said he, "to Insult, contumely, abuse, misrepresentation, faschood, and ma lignity." "It was not," he continued, "con genial to my nature." He boro It only bo cause he must. But he regarded the Republi can Senators as "brutes, cowards, aud black guards," and he meant hereafter "to give them a good as they sent" -a declaration which was received with roars mid tcmntnr applause. Then having denounced with true Slantation vehemence the "fraudulent Preal ent," and abused Mr. Hayos, especially for his treatment of South Carolina (1), he urged tno oouui mj aianu souu ana sicauiast in hos tility to the Administration and the llanubll. can party, and to ran go Itself In "oompactond unbroken affiliation" with Tammany Hall. Keconclllatton and brotherly love Is an ex cellent thing, whenlt Is not all on ono side; but It seems to bo high time for us to think of something else. When the long-lost son aud brother undertakes to turn tho hone out at the windows, and to bring In all his disrepu table Vtsoclatos to break open the pantry and carry off the plate, the ardor of affection gives way to me instinct oi seir-ueieuce. s Democratic authorities are sure the Re publican leaders are solid aeaiust the Piwal- dent, and the President hi determined not to "give In," and are rubbing their bands with glee over the prospect of a dclighful quarrel wiucu win result only in gain mr the Demo cratlo party. Perbanstbev will not 1 diu appointed, but many a "likely" egghos failed to prodnce any chicken whatever. The Demo cratic party Is liable to need a good many tldngs .more beneficial than a Kcpnblican qnarrel to enable U to bear the burden of a solid South, eager for subsidies and rcpadia tlon. The Republican party has always been able to thrust Its quarrels Into the background when tho time came for a stand-up tussel with the enemies of the Government, aud it will be able to do it again.
