Senator Gor don has just secured tho appointment of u brother-in-law nam oil Hum Haralson to an onlce in the War Ipurtment. The bovs Iu blue" can take back seats. The Ililcigh (X. C.) Register enters a do cided protest against the appointment of Democrats to office in North Carolina. It condemns the appointment of MiLLARD, 83 postmaster at Ashe tile, as an unmerited rebuke to nnmhers of true and tried Repub licans of that place. The Philadelphia Tines has put on its ar paint, and with knife in hand is whoop ing for Senator Patterson's scalp. The Benator was formerly from Pennsylvania, and hence the Times thinks he is its game. It aays: "The late visit of Senator Butt.ee to his constituents has undoubtedly strength ened the Impression that an effort will be made to stifle the prorwention of Senator Patteiwov in return for his services In seat ing uls.Deruoen.tic colleague. South Caro lina cannot 'afford to do anything of the kind. Mr. PATTFnsoVs offenses are noto rious, and no political or personal attone ment can meet tho demands of the law that the State has already invoked for his punishment. If the Senate chooses to ig nore the charges against him, as It has per latently done, them is a still greater obliga tion resting upon the State. Let Mr. Pat lUOriuv bo brought to trial." TIip Poor lIoiiiMiolilcrv. Our sympathies are always ready and flow out naturally to any person or class of persons who aro unjustly oppressed. Just now wc know no cla who areabeing more nnjustly treated than the holders of the Government eccuiittes, and consequently we sympathize with them, and shall show how much this class Imo Buffered on com pared with tho other creditors of the Gov trnment. The bonds of the United States were sold from 1SG2 to 1865, and were paid for in cur rent y. At that time a man who had one hundred dollars in gold could purchase with it two hundred and fifty dollars' worth of currency, and for that get a Government lfond calling for two hundred and fifty dol lars, with six per cent, interest in gold nothing being said about what the bond Trns to be paid Jn. The poor fellows who were induced by patriotism or false representations to make these investments understood, as everybody else did, that when the bond wis paid off it was to 1m iu the some currency that bought it ; but alU tw ard n lot of designing men who had been elected to Congress de clared that these bonds must be paid in toiu, and, still later, this &ame loily declared that only gold Hhould be coin; thus tint preventing the poor bond-holders from re ceiving their piy In tho same currency they had Invested, and which is ued for the other creditors of the Government, and then ilenjlngthera the privilege of having any of "the dollars of our fathers" to Jingle in their pockets Diulngull this time, an average of thir teen ears, the poor bombholdcrs have been forced every vuir to take mx per cent. Inter est In gold upon the bonds pun based, gen erally in advance of the day ngrced upon. nml to show what a huidihip this has been we will Ulubtiale. Let us suppose that In 1803 some deluded individual had ten thou sand dollars In gold, and determined to iu Cl It hr United States bonds His first btep watj to puroliA&o twenty-five thousand dollars in turmicy, and upon paying this Into the Tunsury he received bonds for t'.rcntv.lo thousand dollars L'vcry six months siuto that time ho has been forced by a ruthless mid unscrupulous Govern ment lo icielve seven hundred and fiftv dollars hi gold m interest on his bunds If the first payment was made on the 1st of July, 18U3, this piece of diabolism lias In en repeated twcnty-nlno times, and tho poor bondhohler, who iuresteerhls ten thousand dolbrs in gold, has been forced to receive twntg-ont thousand Jtvi'Auadrtd dollar in fold, and as the lime when his bond was to be paid has arrived, he is now asked to take twenty flv e thousand other dollars In gold, n taking n total of forty-six tSousamJ, seven hundred andjifty (foMrt iu gold forced upon the bond-holder for tho ten thousand dollars Invested In 1603. Not satisfied with such cruelty as this the Government has gone cv en further. It said to tho 1ond holder "bring your twenty-flve thousand dollars worth of bonds ami deposit them in my vaults nnd I will loan yon twenty-two thousand five hundred dollars1 worth of currency, on which you can make ten per cent interest," and the poor, de luded, oppressed bond-holder Uid as he was bid bi ought liin bomhi and put them In the vaults, received his twenty-two thou nand tho hundred dollars In currerey, nnd lias been making ten per ccntinlcrest on that for fourteen earn, thus hav tug the ad ditional sum ot thirty-one thousand jlrthvn a red uoJtm forced ujioii him by a tyrannU cal Government nnd making a grand total of snenfy right thttHinil twohitlrcd anilfifljf dollars, more than Inlf of it In gold, thrust upon hlui for tho ten thousand dollars ho hid In IflG J. Was ever tyranny more op pressive? Now sec the difference with whhh other creditors of tho Government hare been treated. At the same time nnd even lcforo the poor bond-holders were deluded into In vesting iu bonds, men were called upon to Invent their lives In defense of the conn try, and hundreds of thousands did so. Some lost them; others left an arm or a leg on the battle-field, or were otherwise disabled from pursuing their ordinary avocatious. Tho Government has not forced the widows and children of these dead men or theso crip pled soldiers to receive gold or anv thing else tn payment for th?ir injuries, or to en able them to live, some, after years of wait ing, have been doled out a piltiuuo which Is still denied others. Other men wore called upon to glvo their property, their horvs, thdr corn, their meat nnd all they had to support tho army which was strug gling for the prcscrvitiou of the Union, and tho Government 1ms not oppressed the men by forcing payment on them J on the contrary, It has lefused to demoralize them by giving them cither gold or currency, and uc technicalities that vtould dUgruoe a pettifogger lua Justice court to prevent any one from obtaining money due him. Tims wo see how tho Ixmd-hohlcr has been nnd is being opprescd. The svmpi- thica of the nation should be aroused in his bchilf, va have been those of Secretary Sherman, who, poor man, Is weeping his llle awayberause of tho wrongs done "tho poor bond-holders." C'UU-HcrWcr HclVrni. The Albany A1! rnijt Journal hnH preached a discourse to Its renders on the text "What is Civil-Service Ueform?" which presents tho case as candidly and plainly as It can well be pnt It is worth repetition, and we reproduce it for the consideration of thane who have been taught to regard tho ejvll servlce policy of President Hayes as hc since re milk of tho wood. It says: Tli Rnnti1lrfin tmrtv hu dflnrvid for a re form of the civil service, and is trno to the spirit of the declaration. Its controlling elo mcuts are. Indeed, held up In some quarters an unfaithful to their professions. We deny it. We deny that tho great body of earnest Be publicans who siuuu witn tne iienuDiican tvin ate are opiwsod to civil-service reform. We deny that the Senate itself has taken any at titude of hostility. Wo deny that thone who arraign the Itepubllcan representatives as un friendly to reform have themselwt-s shown any intelligent grasp of tho rval evils of tho old system or any fstthful support of the troe principles upon wmen me civu service suouiu bo orKunlzed. The flrt tldng to do Is to determine what Is mot clvil-iiervlce reform. The non polities or der was not reform, for It didn't even touch the structure and principles of the service. It assumed to declare what ofllcers should or vhould not do outside of their offices not what they should do Inside. Thentformof the service relnU'i to theefSciency and fidelity of ltd" administration the order related solely to tho political rtfehts and privileges of tho offi cers as citizens Thero was not one word in it concerning the manner in which official duties should bo discharged. It Is thus clear that the order did not constitute the ground-work of anv jtut and sound organization of tho service. Other proposition which have been put forth In the name of reform are equally wide of the mark. It is not reform simply to declare that members of Congress shall hav e noth ing to do with appointments. Ihe selec tions must bo made upon information from some source Ihe President cannot know ever)' candidate, lie must consult thcee who do know, and why not tho KeprcseiiUtivee as well as others? Nor docs some of the prac tice wo have recently seen constitute reform. To maintain that members of Congress should have no part in appointments, and then lot a Georgia benator name a marshal is uot reform. To insist that Jleprescutatlves should have no voice, and then ask the Pennsylvania delega tion to soluct the Minister to England U uot reform, buck displays are simply a mockery of all sound rulos or consistent practice. Now, to de terrain how to reform, we must first determine what there is to reform. WLat are tho evils of the old ejttem? We define them as un uncertain tenure, persistent con tention for place, and personal decadence on tha apjwiuting powur. Is tho constant strjfc for place pernicious la Us effects aud Influence? it grows out of the uncertain tenure which makes an office open to chaniro at anv time. Are there abuses In the activity of officers to curry out wnas may lw considered per sonal political purpose? It grows out of the dependence of lb officer upon the ap pointing power for the retention of his place. All tho chief evlU of the sys temall those which caueo cOm plaint may be traced to these sources. How are they to be remedied? Not by an Executive order wnicn uoesu t toucn incir causes at an, nut ny such a change in tho organic plan of tho sys tem as reaches thesoat of thedUeiue. Instead of leaving an uncertain tenure, make it cer tain for a fixed term. Instead of leaving the o ulcer dependent ou me anwinting power. make him removable during his term only fur inetliciency or infidelity. A system based on these principles would give good olneers, make them secure In their places m long as they faithfully perform their duty, mitigalo the strife for olncc, aud Impart Independence and stability to the service. If thU boclear. as we think it is if those principles aie Just end rfiicaelous, as we hold them to bo then to sustain them is to support true reform. That is just what the Uochester platforpi did. It commended legislation 'making officers secure iu a limited fixed teuuro and subject to removal only as officers under eute laws are rcmovaoio in tins state on charges to be regularly aud opeuly pre ferred and adjudged." lit re Is a distinct enunciation of the elemental prlnclptou of re form. It was the first positive and definite declaration of the kind In any platform or offi cial utterance Ou tho part of those who con demned the Kuchcstor platform there bad up to that time been uothing but an Kxtcutlve order which dlda t touch reform, and there has boon uothlug since. We set the platform aaiut tho order, and we say that the first is a truer cmui or reiurui. Cin one generation issuo a series of irre deemable promises that ore uou interest hear log and that never mature, except as a legai tender for debts, bind the next generation to respect the sacred legal-tender character ef suvh promises? xaw rvRhtcATxoys. dCRIBNFIVs MONTHIY FOR 1S77, handsomely Dnuiui, in two volume, wiin inn nwjioe, aj s.

Mr. Itoycson's novel, to bo begun daring the year, will ho remarkable for its jwwer nnd interest. It Is tho first novel by this author, the scene of which Is bid In America.' Thk problem now to bo solved once moro Is whether tho money which furuis our medium for the exchanging of tho fruits of our Jabor need leave an intrinsic value. John Law solved it ouee Soui. peopledon'tftppcartolike the rocumed friendship between fee it a tors CoNKLWQ and IJr tr. Well, perhaps It may make things a trifla moro lively and festive for some pcoplo; but then some people never are satisfied. Tub 7W announces that it has a political platform.

TnESE will bo a regular gushing hne feast of the political phartsecs at the Union Lcaguo Club on tho occasion of the President's visit, and If he does not return from it fully pre lured to veto the -stiver remonctl cation wo shall I disappointed. Wf have seen no uotico of an Invitation fmm tho Union Iaguo Club to Senator Stan ley MATTitrws to dine with the President nt Its hospitablo board on the occanlon of the silver wedding anniversary. Why is the great negotiator thus neglected? The IM yesterday had something to say about Hon. W. E. Chandler. But It failed to tell the public anything about that letter of Mv. Cilandlea's, In which Senator Gob Do Va views, as pabllshod in the JW, are com mented on. Is it possible that the Fort blun dered In that matter also and did not report Mr. Gobdov fairly and correctly? We regret to hear that the chances of Union soldiers for employment under this Admlnis-1 tration are becoming beautifully less each day. But wo regret worso to learn that even our District authorities are gradually becom ing infected with tho Idea that ex-Confederates are preferable to Union soldiers as em ployees. There is a, law of Congress on this subject that should either bo enforced or re pealed. It is amusing to read the Philadelphia Timet now-a-days, whoso editor, having been an old Republican leader at llarrisburg, seems to forget In almost every alternate article ho writes that he Has now become a Simon pure Democrat, aud shows Ihe old cloven foot of Republicanism. In tho next remorse arouses him to a sense of bis present condition, and ho pitches In to do penance, as It were, and out-Bourbous tho Bourbons themselves la the dirty work of tho Democracy. This Is tho goldou era of good feeling Northern and Western Democrats can con tribute to it when Congress reassembles by ascertaining how many. Union Democrats- soldiers and others bare been dismissed from positions in tho House by Colonel (C 8. A.) Polk, and rt placed by Southern gents to "shut the do"'? Also, how many Northern Demo crats hold any kind of positions In the House at this time, and of their relative proportion to the chlv airy from Dixie ? Before the North ern and some of the Western Democratic mem bers wcut homo to est thoir Christmas pies and things, they were considerably disgusted on this nbjoct, and as the Inquiry will be interesting to the bj) sin blue, who thought they were fighting to save the Union, and have since held out the fraternal hand to the gentlemen In gray, it will be both eminently pertinent and import aut Wo want this golden era of good fuoling to have the true ring. DeuocbvTic orgau-grlndcrs of tho Port stripe, and Democratic statesmen of the Gon tmix stripe, do not like to hear about "tho erack slave-holders' whip." Tho friction is a little too rough ou thoir sensitive organizations, and yet, singularly, the phrase quite happily ex presses our meaning. When wo aro com pelled as chroniclers of current events to refer to the Insufferable Insolence of Southerners In Congress, who, unmindful of the mercy ex tended to them for the crime of treason, which in any other nation would have con signed them to tho gallows, we cannot think of any figure which will so aptly illustrate the situation as the brutal "crack of the slave holders' whip." It fits In beautifully, aud If our Democratic friends of the above stripes, cannot stand the pressure, they aro to be pitied, perhaps, because wo can't exactly see what they aro going to do about it. The probability Is If tho distinguished representa tives of all the dignity, chivalry, etc , In Con gress persist In airing their a ute -hellun inso lence, they will constantly realize tho uncom fortable reference to the same old "crack of the avo-holdcrs' whip." It carries an ugly rcmlndcr.we admit, but we must be cruel only to bo kind. It all.r&sts with tho distinguished representatives of Southern chivalry. A Louisville cow saved the Ca theirs! from destruction by fire. She gave the alarm by rattllug around on au ash barrel, and thus atoned In part for the mischief accomplished by that Chicago cow, Tutbe are a great many people who -are auxious to stand by the President, and it would giro them soma oonrage if the President should take a notion to stand by himself. ii:nnas'AU John Bbouoii M Is better.
